    The “little, little kinderlach” will bring Moshiach…

    That’s very well said, because “little, little kinderlach” are pure in heart.

    Similarly, it will be the “little, little kinderlach” deep INSIDE of us (the pure and divine neshamah), once unfettered by klippot, that will bring a Gan Eden (a sanctuary) for Moshiach and the divine truth, once more into this world. Sigh…:)

    …Until then, good anashim, keep working at it!:)

    Shaina,
    I am beyond impressed. Clearly this morah had a deep and lasting impact on you and it was one that has been internalized and is a big piece to the puzzle of who you are…. Great article and thanks for the inspiration.

    I was scrolling down COL, and paused when I came across a picture of a little girl with the most adorable smile. I thought to myself, that girl looks alot like Shaina (P) Wolf…

    You’ve written an inspiring piece, may her memory live on, and may those she impacted learn to take advantage of every moment in life, to care for others as she did for you.

    Beautiful , inspiring and it is the children who will bring Chanchy’s memory to life. It is all of us who continue to write our words of love for her that will continue to touch the hearts and souls of Chanchy’s family. G-d bless them all..

    I once heard a story about a little girl asking her mother why Hashem does what he does,(making her friend move, and taking people she loved away). Her mother told her it was like a cake, A cake is made up of many things, and at the end it is delicious. Her mother told her to come in the kitchen and they would bake a cake. She asked her if she liked her cake and the daughter said “yes” Ok said the Mother, Here is flour tast it, the daughter said that doesn’t taste good and she went on about… Read more »
