Unfortunately, yesterday my davening was inspiring & hartzig. Why unfortunately?
Yesterday, as I entered the Zaltzman Shiva home where a precious Shlucha daughter of 6 years old passed away, from a swimming pool, I see in front of me a swimming pool, small children, with ripped shirts from kriah.
In front of you, you see a huge, beautiful picture of the Rebbe, staring, right at you? I start crying with tears.
Hashem, Rebbe, Ad Masai?! But then, I see Mrs. Chiena Zaltzman, the Safta, running past me, busy in action, helping to serve huge amounts of food, to help feed the many guests who have just arrived from all over, this one just drove 14 hours, etc. this one from Chicago.
Mrs. Zaltzman got a bunch of Women to start going to Mikva, as a result of this tragedy. A new mikva is now being built in Niagara Falls. This one started to cover her hair. Wow? I’m in awe. She has no time to be depressed.
“Chassidim, Ayn Mishpacha, we’re one family.” Yes, we’re all different. This one says Yechi, this one doesn’t. So what?!
It’s easy to be friendly with the people that we think like. Let’s be there for each other!
Smile to someone you haven’t spoken to in a while. Say good morning!
Maybe that’s what Moshiach is waiting for? For that “Good Morning.” For the Achdus, that is urgently needed in our Communities!
It’s the summer. Let us cherish our children. Hug them. Hug them again! In Eicha it says, “Come & sing in the night.”
Chassidus explains this to mean that during the “night” of galus one can come & sing, despite the fact that it is dark.
At the end of every dark tunnel, there is a light shining bright. May we see that light, & may all our tears be erased, with Moshiach Now!
