  1. WoW! Has it been 10 years already? I was in Yerushalayim that night with the Rebbe from Forshay getting ready to leave back for NY. He wanted to wait until nightfall and Rosh Chodesh to start so he can attend a Seudas Rosh Chodesh with some of his former talmidim that were now attending Yeshiva in Yerushalayim, All of sudden the whole city was placed on lockdown. All roads leaving in and out were closed with only 1 lane open on 443. We made it with only minutes to spare. Yehi Zichram Baruch.
