    i dont think you should use the words freaking out. its more just like a really tough wake up call

    Their age is little consolation for our loss.

    #782183

    My R”Y told me that gedolim die in threes.

    Who was before Rav Michel Yehudah ZT”L?

    k so acknowledging that its a wake up call is good…but now, what are we going to do about it? yes, they were older, but there are no coincidences in yiddshkeit…when things like this happen we can’t just go on with our lives; we need to take time to reflect for at least a few minutes and try to learn from it, or change, or SOMETHING! anyone else feel this way? like, you’re hearing alarm bells ringing in your head?!

    I wasnt trying to console the op but rather explain that people of advanced aged are more likely to die.

    I mean he was 100..how much longer did you want him to live

    #782190

    20 more years would have been just fine.

    i dont think that is a respectful way to talk about these great people. Hashem did NOT take them from us because they were old. He took them to wake us up. dont try to find other excuses to get you out of doing teshuva!

    I don’t think G-d wants us to freak out about it. If a tzadik, or anyone else, dies, it was obviously meant to happen that way. We should learn from the experience, and look at it in a positive light. And before anyone here wants to tell me that this isn’t realistic or that I’m saying this because I don’t know what it’s like, stop. Because I do know what it’s like. And I try to look at the positive, no matter how difficult that may be.

    Dor dor v’dorshav. We must accept the gzar din that these Gedolim were gifts for the doros that they influenced. Now we must seek and raise contemporary gadlus. That there are not similarly bright stars on the horizon is cause for introspection. There is also the nechomo of “ki lo sishocach mpi zar’oh”.

    For those of us old enough to remember, Rav Yaakov Kamenetsky and Rav Moshe Feinstein also passed away within a very short time, and they were both quite elderly.

    As mentioned above, when Tzadikim are taken from us it can be seen both as a kapparah and as a wake-up call. Given what some of the news in the Chareidi community has been for the last couple of years, we definitely both advocates in the Beis din shel Maalah and a very, very loud wake-up call. Evidently we aren’t paying enough attention to the shofar call on Rosh HaShanah.

    Moshe, Aaron and Miriam all died in the same year. Then the Yiden entered EY.
