this communication media that allows us a peak into Sholom Mordechai’s life – a life full of connection to Hashem and other yidden – is astounding.

I’d love to hear Rabbi Rubashkin report about His stay in Crown Heights!

Sounds like Sholom is doing a fantastic job, and that there are plenty of Yidden there.
Perhaps Merkos should make it official and make Mr. Rubashkin the Shliach to the Otisville Correctional Facility.

I can’t do much especially financially, but I say Tehillim for a Yeshua for him every single day. I pray that G-d listens, because every one is heartfelt.

Simach Poretz Geder!

Reb Shalom, reading of how you are conducting yourself under these circumstances is a real Kiddish Hashem.Today I read a quote that goes “Courage is being in control of fear Not
the absence of fear.Your simcha should be poretz geder biruchnius upifrat bigashmius!

My GOD, that is what I call turning a horrible situation---
Guest
My GOD, that is what I call turning a horrible situation---

and elevating it way beyond its status…
Rabbi Rubashkin has taken on the rotten jail system, and is openly daring them to bring on their klipahs, only to “nuke” them one by one with torah, tefilah, tzedaka!! He’s actually teaching us the ropes of TRUE SHLICHUS with each passing chag……R”L, may he be freed soon I feel.

I am ashamed of the lack of Mivtzoyim I do

I too am ashamed by my lack of mivtzoyim. This letter brought tears to my eyes. He said mi k’amcha yisroel by his fellow prisoner, the Russian Yid. We can say it on Reb Shalom Mordechai.

In your z’chus may Moshiach finally come right NOW!! The way you wrote I LOVE HASHEM! is just too beautiful to describe, but as it says in Tanya, when we accept our yisurim and tests with love Hashem will show us and you and yours, his love in an open revealed manner!! Moshiach NOW!!!

Shliach in prison

Shliach in prison

its amazing, maybe the whole reason SMR was put in prison was to mikarev these people. hopefully he has done his shlichus and is ready to come home.
