Weekly Story: The Cry Of The Shofar

In Beis Rebbe (p.34), it is noted that the Mitteler Rebbe was not able to be in Lubavitch for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur of 5586 (1825) and he sent a message that his son-in-law the HaRav Menachem Mendel (commonly known as the Tzemach Tzedek) should say a maamar in his stead. The Tzemach Tzedek refused, [as only a Rebbe can say his original maamar Chassidus], but he said a parable to explain the meaning of tekias shofar. The clarity in which he presented this thought, that the people were so affected by it, that even before he explained the nimshal (what we should learn from it), they burst into tears.

$6 to Help a Jew in a Trailer Park

They may live a world apart from you, but just 3 hours away. Poor Jews.

Some live in a trailer park. They think they can’t afford to be Jewish.

They so badly want to be at a seder.

I wish you could meet them, they are real Baal Shem Tov’s Yidin.

So wholesome and Sincere. Can you help them?

We’d like to host them, but we can’t do it ourselves.

The local Jewish Community does not care and is not able to help.

So we turn to you. Because you do understand, and you do care.

Can you give $36? Even as little $6 can help.

Of course you can. I hope you do.
