  1. Baruch Dayan HaEmes
    it brings tears to my eyes to write this-as I see us losing our greatest leaders in klal yisroel-when you know this tragic loss could’ve been avoided if we did teshuva earlier.

    What a tragedy-& loss- we caused cause we cant get our act together & do teshuva WHAT ARE WE ALL WAITING FOR?

    Perhaps we are not appreciating these Gedolei Hador that Hashem has sent us to lead & guide us in this world. i.e. when someone takes something for granted & doesn’t give the proper thanks, then it gets taken away from us. are we listening to our gedolei Hador & their guidance? when they make takanos-for our good-to help us return to Hashem & become better?

    has klal yisroel gotten the message from Hashem-waiting for us to start doing teshuva-have YOU done anything yet? how many more tragedies & Tzaddikim will it take C”V before we wake up & start doing teshuva? OVER 20 GEDOLEI HADOR have passed away within the past year R”L. HOW MANY MORE DO WE NEED TO LOSE C”V to let hashem know that we get the message for klal yisroel to start doing teshuva ASAP?
    note:lots of the gedolim this past year were niftar R”L in the 70′s or 80′s this was not enough to wake us up to teshuva

    wish we would wake up and see the message from Hashem to start doing teshuva, so we would stop losing our leaders & guidance in klal yisroel.

    Look at their ages & how we are losing our Gedolim constantly

    Let us put a stop to these days of endless tzaros. let us all make resolutions to do teshuva. how else can we expect it to stop if we don’t change our ways & head towards teshuva & returning to Hashem?

    May all of Klal yisroel start doing teshuva NOW-before tragedy strikes again C”V-& THEN mashiach will come b’karov
