  1. BDE. This is such sad news. Hashem should give the family the courage to overcome this great nisayon and we should only share in simchos.

  2. When a tragedy of this magnitude hits klal yisroel there’s always three things that must be addressed. The first to be ‘mishtatef ‘in the pain of another yid – one cannot imagine what this family is going through. And second to strengthen our ‘emunah’ in H-shem and realize that after all is said, it only happened because that was the rotzoin of Hashem and that everything Hashem does is for the good. And thirdly one has to be very careful not to speak negative or badly about Hashem that how could he to this or even to say every day another tragedy or what’s next, as if to imply that all is bad and all is wrong c”v. WHEN A PERSON IS A TRUE PERSON OF FAITH & TRUST IN HASHEM. HE GETS TO BE THE HAPPIEST PERSON IN THE WORLD. This is a nisayon for the parents in bitachon & emunah in hashem (just like aharon hakohen when his children died he was quiet & had faith in Hashem…). If its not possible for a person to pass a test from Hashem he is not given the test. Its a time like this that one has to remind oneself of all the ‘hatovah’ and all the chesed that H-shem does for all of us ALL the time.
    Every person has a job to fulfill in this world. now the child has done his job & is ready to go to the olam ha’emes (true world)& you two special people (parents) were the chosen agents of Hashem to take care of this child. May hashem reward you for this.& may his neshama have an aliyah & your lives be filled with only Simcha.

  3. these kind of things happening & people being Niftar at young ages or in strange ways R”L are all wake up call to klal yisroel that we only care about ourselves, but when it comes to helping/caring for another yid then i cannot help you.
    with that being the case, each time tragedy strikes Hashem has the same question-for each person separately-now you have woken up, now you are crying at this baby’s levaya R”L but when we hear of someone else in tragic cases… we dont care. hashem then wants to know if we will wake up now to help others or do we need another tragic WAKE-UP call from hashem C”V to care for one another?

  4. does anyone know if we can hear the levaya on a live hook up/or conference call? i cant be there but would really like to hear and be part of it!
    please respond asap!

  5. Rabosai, u wanna give mussar, fine. But it doesn’t havew to be a ma’a’racha. Keep it short. More ppl would read it. Thanx.

  6. To #6. Each person has to make his own cheshbon hanefesh. Noone know why Hashem did it.It’s a wake up call for each one of us.
    I agree wit #10 in that, one of the things that Klal Yisroel excels in is Chesed and helping one another out.

  7. to chaim
    Thats great & they should keep it up to help a fellow yid. helping a yid doesn’t have to cost money.
    what do you/we do when you/we hear that 8 were killed & 50 were injured in Israel? Nothing we put our heads down for a second & say to ourselves Hashem bring the גאולה & then we forget about it & go one with our lives. If any of us do care, we only think about the dead, & we think injured means the beginning of an arrow went into his hand & the doctor must pull it out & he’s just bleeding a little, but you know something, injured can also be 98% dead for life. We don’t care & do not know what it means to care for our brothers in Israel. over 3000 have passed away how many more is Hashem going to have to kill until we all know what it means to care for our brothers in Israel?.what about the sin of לא תעמד על דם רעך Don’t stand idly by as your brother is getting killed, the problem is WE DO. Anyone (of us) that has the power to do something & doesn’t is doing this sin you don’t need to be standing near the body. Maybe send some money to Israel, say a פרק in תהלים.

  8. I’m deeply saddened. I was together with Nochum when we were both bochurim in BMG and he was then, and is still today as good as they come. What he and his special wife must be going through cannot be described. I feel terribly for Nochum. Besuros Tovos to all.

  9. Michael, I don’t know where you’re coming from, but I do know you’re wrong. All the Yidden I know would gladly and willingly help a fellow Yid out. The chessed of klal Yisrael knows no bounds. I’ve seen the chessed here in Lakewood first hand and it’s limitless.
    You seem to have an axe to grind. People aren’t perfect, only Hashem is. Hashem doesn’t make mistakes, but people do. Because you feel slighted or wronged isn’t a valid reason to make blanket disparing statements in a public forum.
    The next time you need help, I hope someone helps you. The next time someone needs help, I hope you’ll help them.

  10. #6
    If you got all the answers why dont you start doing something? Do you have an orginization to help people? Do you do anything other than write these brilliant pearls?

  11. to everyone
    over the past few years, all the tragic news R”L that has happened to klal yisroel-locally & worldwide etc…- everytime tragedy strikes R”L i begin to daven & cry etc… BUT while everyone else is crying -at the levaya- over the loss & the pain of the family & the tragedy, i am crying that klal yisroel-in each town-has still not woken up to open up up to ALL YIDDEN IN KLAL YISROEL & needs its own tragic wake up calls from hashem. (im sure if you think of ANY jewish community you can think of its own tragedies & issues its having)


    THIS IS WHY RUBASHKIN-in america- & emanuel school- in israel-HAPPENED. it brought Achdus back to klal yisroel & THAT IS WHAT WE NEED FOR MASHIACH TO COME.

    may mashiach come ASAP

    whats going on now in new square with the SINAS CHINAM R”L…. & a very sad story of an innocent person… there is no way Hashem can bring mashiach & give us back the bais hamikdosh klal yisroel is still in the same situation why it was destroyed.
