To All Concerned About OOMIS: I have tried many times to telephone OOMIS since Sandy. I actually got through just as the storm was starting. She had no flooding in her home B’H but, she had no electricity and no heating. The Yeshiva next door was totally flooded as well as her neighbors next door and along the street. I tried many times after that initial phone call, and could not get through.
I just spoke to OOMIS for 37 minutes, she has just literally returned to their home after 2 weeks. She had to leave as they had no electricity, heating or cooking facilities. They were staying with phenominal friends elsewhere. I told her that everyone was so concerned here at the coffee room and she was so chuffed by everyone’s concern. The heating is just starting to warm the home, and will take time for her to get back into a routine. She is grateful to H’KBH for all His hakaras hatov.
It is through this wonderful coffee room, that OOMIS and I have been back in contact with one another, after many long years of losing contact. Thank you from the depths of my heart!
May we all be zocher to hear only besurot tovot and to share many simachot with simcha in good health! Omein Kein Yehe Razon!November 12, 2012 10:40 pm at 10:40 pm #1091382ZeesKiteParticipant
TBB: Thank you, I was really scared. I could never know, I was down in some other areas, it’s a total war zone out there. I glad it’s not flooding, it’s pretty catastrophic to have one’s home, memories, indeed self, just flushed out like that. ???? ??’ ?? ???.November 12, 2012 11:46 pm at 11:46 pm #1091383oomisParticipant
Hi to all. I am truly touched by your concern. As my dear friend TBB told you, I have just returned to my home B”H after too many days away. We lost power and heat, but chasdei Hashem had no realy damage other than the doorframe swelling, so we have a bit of trouble opening, closing, and locking/unlocking it. I did lose a freezer’s worth and 2 fridge’s worth of food, but when I see what others have lost, I am humbled.
I appreciate that ZK and others were worried. I had no available internet where I was, and I decided Hashem was encouraging me to reassess how I spend my free time. It IS a churban out here. I ahve friends who saw their possessions floating away, lost their cars, the entire contents of the bottoms of their homes, and major appliances. The reconstruction will take them weeks, if not months, and it has taken a great emotional toll on them.
BUT – the gam zu l’tovah is that I have been zochah to see the most amazing acts of extraordinary chessed and ahavas Yisroel being done, by total strangers. I have also learned a great lesson, which I mentioned to a local Rosh Yeshivah as we stood outside and watched the utility people attempt to restore some power. Obama THINKS he has power. Achmedinejad believes he has power. Donald Trump and his fellow millionaires/billionaires are convinced THEY have power. None of them has power. Only the Aibishter does. We saw the force of that power unleashed, as we went from one weather extreme to another in a matter of days, sometimes even in the same day. It is a sobering thought. It is uplifting, though to realize how we Jews come together to help each other in crisis. Mi k’Amcha, Yisroel!
Again, thank you all for your concern. I hope none of you has suffered any serious losses, if any, as a result of this hurricane and its aftermath.February 20, 2013 11:46 pm at 11:46 pm #1091384ybrooklynteacherMember
