  • Heartwarming Story: “Windows to the Soul”

    During installation, one of the bochurim asked the installers if they were Jewish by any chance. One of them replied, “I am not, but my mother was”. The boy stopped and quickly explained to him that according to Halacha he was actually Jewish. Written by Rabbi Gershon Avtzon • Full Story

    Written by Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivas Lubavitch Cincinnati, Rabbi Gershon Avtzon

    A few years ago, the Yeshivas Lubavitch of Cincinnati has bought a new building and since then has slowly been upgrading and remodeling. One of the upgrades needed was to install windows in the large Beis Medrash.

    Being that it is very costly, and the Yeshiva never seems to have extra funds, it always got pushed off. For the beginning of this school year, the Yeshiva decided that enough is enough and we would “take the plunge”. After much preparation the windows were finally installed last Friday.

    During installation, one of the bochurim asked the installers if they were Jewish by any chance. One of them replied, “I am not, but my mother was”. The boy stopped and quickly explained to him that according to Halacha he was actually Jewish.

    The worker was so excited (being that his mother intermarried, her family had cut all ties with her). The boy told him that if he puts on Tefillin – for the first time in his life – it will be his Bar Mitzva. He started to cry… I came into Yeshiva and saw what was going on and I asked him for his name and gave him the number to the local Shliach in his area. He called the Shliach and now he has Mezuzos on his front door! Mitzva Goreres Mitzva!

    The Rambam writes: “Accordingly, throughout the entire year, a person should always view himself as equally balanced between merit and sin and the world as equally balanced between merit and sin… if he performs one Mitzva, he tips his balance and that of the entire world to the side of merit and brings deliverance and salvation to himself and others. This is implied by: ‘A righteous man is the foundation of the world,’ i.e., he who acted righteously, tipped the balance of the entire world to merit and saved it.”
