    Anyone who ever saw this precious little boy would vouch for the fact that he was the happiest, sunniest child they ever met. Obviously a very special neshama, in a very special family that merited to have him in their midst for his short task in this unfathomable world.

    beyond words

    beyond words

    Anyone who knows the Gerbers knows how they are moiser nefesh for the chinuch of their own children and the children of their community. May Hashem comfort them with nachas from their children, sheyichyu and their talmidim and mushpaim.

    Guest
    do we REALLY " need moshiach now"?

    1/2 of all the comments here say either “ad mosai” or say “we need moshiach now”

    Why do we only say:

    “we need Moshiach Now”

    Only if and when Tragedy strikes?

    And untill then, who says “we need moshiach now”?

    WAKE UP YIDEN!

    why? why only when such things (Hashem yshmerenu) happen then PEOPLE ASK FOR MOSHIACH?? Shouldn´t that be our cry every single day no matter what happens? I have NEVER seen in an engagement/birth comment moshiach now & ad mosay. And if it would people think the person that wrote: “He is crazy”.
    So please understand that not only is not crazy, it´s the right thing to do than we will not need ‘those’ reminders from Hashem. Anyways AD MOSAY, AD MOSAY, AD MOSAY! Hashem please we beg and demmand MOSHIACH RIGTH NOW!!!! no one second more in this bitter golus!!!

    I know Rabbi and Mrs Gerber well; my son and older daughter used to go to Hebrew school lessons 10 years ago, before there was a Mitzvah Factory Hebrew School. My heart absolutely goes out to them at this time! In the years since my marriage my husband and I lost 4 babies to stillbirth, so I know how the Gerbers are feeling right now. Our losses led me to research what Torah says about why some children come into the world for a short time; they have a duty to perform. We don’t know what it is, only Hashem… Read more »
