Did anyone get a chance to read the letter that Shalom Mordechai Rubashkin wrote for Chanuka? I just read it and it is the most heartbreaking letter I think that I have read in a long time! If you didn’t read it yet…..hurry up before Chanuka is over!December 5, 2010 12:46 am at 12:46 am #714699Nisht Ahe Nisht AherMember

It is truely remarkable how his bitterness is really against how his father was treated moreso than how he was treated. He is an amazing individual accepting his burden until the time that Hashem sets him free. He does not count on the Justice system to do so. In his heart he awaits Hashem’s miracle to set him free until then he accepts what Hashem’s nisayon is for him.
He does not complain that these miserable Government agents and others took his money from him, ruined his reputation and so on. he does not go on and on about the wrong that was done him. He doesn’t plot against others to save himself as other Jews have done. He quietly and patiently accepts what is happening as if Hashem himself has decreed his fate and awaits for Hashem to decree his next order.
Personally I am in awe of this man and his family. I could never emulate his courage and his faith. I only wish that I could reach such a madreigah. There is a lot to learn from them. And unfortunately a lot to learn from this entire incident. The way the goyim behaved and unfortunately the way many of us yiddin behaved as well. If only…….if only we could all go back and start over. Maybe we could have done things differently and the end result would have been different as well.
