What an amazing story. You see even when someone says no to one mitzvah, it is our opportunity to show them we can do the mitzvah of ahavas Yisroel.

Yasher Koach to this bochur, and for being such an amazing PERSON and CHOSSID.

Great.

sounds like that fellow is in urgent need of some psychological intervention, what a roller-coaster of emotion and an insinuation about shechita. I smell a rat.

One of the biggest emotional problems of the western society is that we forgot how to cry. A good cry once in a while can be very healthy emotionally, especially when the crying is done in public.

Its not Ruchniyus alone that bring a Yid closer. Gashmiyus is also needed. We have to bribe the animal soul.

I would like to see you messed over by Bernie Madoff and not feel negative towards yiddishkeit. The guy doesnt need psych help he just needs a job and a friend. So yasher koyach to the bucher who had the patience to listen to the mans woes and show a little care toward him. It shows that listening goes a long way…….. hint hint to parents teachers and hanhola out there!! You can change someones life just by listening to them.

His name is Moshe Frank – he’s active at Chabad of Wall St.

But as was mentioned, this is an “Illustration photo”

This is my son
Guest
This is my son

This story is just the gist of what had transpired. His name is NOT Moshe Frank. He is my son, he did not want his name to be published. Needless to say we are so very proud of him. This situation transpired over an hour. The man was crying for almost thirty minutes until he calmed down and put the teffilin on. It was a most moving story and we are always so proud to be blessed with such a fine son. May Hashem give all the Buchrim Safety and Health until 120 to ask ” Are You Jewish”

As someone that is more than close to the amazing bachur that changed someone’s life, i want to thank Hashem for giving me someone like this in my life, for me to admire and look up to. It was 100% hashkacha prat is, that on that street and at that precise moment the man passed by. It was at that given moment that Hashem gave the bachur the opportunity to change someone’s life, and the boy took that opportunity. I know Hashem and the Rebbe are beaming and shepping Nachas from their dear son, who on that day represented the… Read more »

While it is true Pittsburgh is a fine Lubavitch school and does produce great students, we must also credit his parents. Everything is foundation, clearly his parents instilled fine middos and strong KINDNESS for mankind. May he be one of the next great leaders. AMEN!

The family is truly proud of you. You continue to make our neshamas beam. We love you soooooo much. The fact that you want to keep anonymous and just keep the Mitzvah abroad without taking any kavod for yourself, truly exemplifies who you truly are. We love you.

Shepping Yiddisher Nachas

Shepping Yiddisher Nachas

Only a Bochur who truly feels Hiskashrus to the Rebbe is ready and willing to give up his money for the Rebbes Inyonim. May you continue to have Miseras Nefesh in doing the Rebbe’s work , and spreading the wellsprings. Moshiach Now!

yes
Guest
yes

That’s my Rebbe in him doing mivtzoyim

Well I am inspired! Who knows what impression this story will leave on me tomorrow as I go back out there and do my thing. Thank you for posting!

It seems like this bochur and the sixteen year old girl who wrote about tznius role models are a representation of who the youth is today and what they are capable of achieving! Let’s build them up!!

Lesson from this episode
Guest
Lesson from this episode

One of the primary lessons I see from this story is: Often, when challenged by another Jew regarding our Yiddishkeit etc., we tend to go in to “defensive” mode and feel the need to argue or the like. Knowing what Chassidus and the Rebbe have taught us countless times about the inner psyche of EVERY Yid – despite what he may seem to be preaching externally – the “Best Practice” is to remain silent and show ATTENTION and INTEREST in what the other person is saying. Respond by asking “open ended questions”, something to the effect of: “That’s quite interesting.… Read more »
