this story is such a treat for us wow!! what a wacko story.. how can i meet this rabbi!! its cool to see how a torah is never lost:) and how every prayer that a jew says with this holy book can do so much...
Woah, this is an incredible story!It is so special to see him holding the little sefer torah as he tells the whole story. It makes you connect to it in a real way! If this is how Hashem arranges a sefer torah to be brought back home, imagine how He wants His children to come back home to Him!! We should try to do what we can and work as hard as we can to come back HOME!!
Amen! i tottaly agree with you Devorah! Chaya Sara-i remember if im not much mistaken that i think you said the story with how you have met her in sternberg as well-or is that someone ells? Gosh! i have a lot to say on this! where to start first!? well ill tell you one thing about bringing people closer to Jeudisim... EVERYONE I NEAD YOUR COMMENTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First half i was in Prospect Park Day camp doing Arts and crafts and i met this very nice, happy, worm, positve girl who is going into 9th or 8th grade i for got witch.... but anyways i decided one day that i should take my brake with her and get to know her a bit more-because as for then, i hardly spoke to her even though we worked together because when we did work, we just had to have quite and concentrate the whole day on what we were doing, and a lot of the time we hardly had time to shmooz because things had to be done on time and rushed to the classrooms, and then we would have another 45min. to prepare for the next 3 bunks....etc....anyways as we talked i learned that she wasnt frum, and that up until 5th grade she went to berigola-a bocharian school(i just dont know how to spell LOL!)and then she went to public. school, and i forgot where she is at today-but not at all in a good place enough. i was realy surprised to see her all this time in a skirt and shirt. but i think in school she wears pants. the funny thing is though that i remember the first day of camp and some girls that i knew before in one of the schools that i went to were not so tzniut, but when she came she was dressed very appropiatly! i asked her if she have ever gone over a teacher or someone that was jewish and experimenced the feeling of a religious home on shobbat. she said that she has twice-but as a shobbaton, and neither as a one, and one thing nor as a friend. so now im trying to invite her for one of these weeks. she realy is a sweet girl with fine midot-which tottaly blew me. when someone insulted her once. she just kept her mouth shut and didnt even curse or answer back! i just realy hope that she'll change to someone a bit frumer than what she is right now...the only thing is that i havent realy done this on my own before-for a whole day so i dont know what to tell her or do with her when she comes... like should i mention things like no pants or just leave it-i just so far never got to call her yet because i dont know when she would be able to come over and how/what to do....any sugestions?thank you in advanced.
Liat-wow! That is so special of you to really care and get to know this girl!! I think you should invite her over and ask her when she thinks would be a good time for her. If it's okay with your parents, don't mention anything to her about coming in a skirt - I'm sure that if she went to a Jewish school when she was younger she will know to come dressed the right way when coming into your house. If anything happens and she comes to your house in pants, maybe you can gently take her to another room and give her a skirt to borrow while she is there - but make sure to do it the right way and make her feel special about it.If she wore skirts all summer while she worked with you then she will probably to come in a skirt when she comes to a religious house and spends shabbos there.Hatzlacha and let me know how it goes!! You are so special for caring about her!
You made it to the end of this post! What do you think about it?
