"The Sound of Silence"
As the word spread that the famed Hornisteipel Rebbe would be in the
city, Jews from all the neighboring towns and villages flocked to Ushomir.
Connection: Starts in the last week of Elul; concludes on Rosh HaShana.
LAST week's Story
"The Yom Kippur Mistake"
He listened to their pleas and was almost moved to remain with them.
But then he recalled the long journey he had traveled to be expressly
with the Baal Shem Tov, and refused the nine Jews.
Connections: 1) 18 Elul (Sept. 14) is the anniversary of the birthday
of the Baal Shem Tov (and the Alter Rebbe of Chabad).
2) ELUL is the month of Teshuvah, dedicated to preparing for Rosh HaShana
& Yom Kippur.
NEXT week's Story
I lost everything in the Holocaust. An old friend found me a job in the
Vaad HaHatzala ('Rescue Council') offices in Paris. The constant workload
my position required helped me maintain my sanity.
Connection: This Motzei Shabbat (Sat. nite), the 6th of Tishrei 5783,
starts the 60th yahrzeit of the Rebbetzin Chana.
