Torah Scroll Dedicated in Memory of Yael and Avigail Gross z”l

10 months after they were accidentally killed by an exterminator’s poison, a sefer Torah will be dedicated this week in memory of Yael and Avigail Gross z”l. For many years American philanthropist Ira Rennert has been donating 30 sifrei Torah every year over Passover and Succot. Earlier this year Rennert approached the Gross family with the offer of dedicating a sefer Torah in their daughters’ memory.

Shimon Gross Visits Shiva of Chaya Zissel Braun HY”D

Over the last few days I, like many of us parents, have been feeling sad about a tragedy which took place last Wednesday in Jerusalem—the inhuman murder by an Arab terrorist of 3-month-old Chayah Zissel Baron. She was the first child born to her parents after three years of marriage. Yesterday, I read something that brought me some comfort for the first time since the murder. According to the website, Kikar HaShabbat, R. Shimon Gross, who lost his own two daughters in a tragic accident last year, paid a visit to the Baron family shiva. He...

The Video That Will Make Natan Sharansky Kvell (3-Minute Music Video)

When Natan Sharansky was imprisoned in the gulag, I don’t think he would have been able to imagine this scene in his wildest hunger-induced dreams… The Red Army Choir performing Hava Nagila. My favorite part is when they grab hands and perform their little Yiddishe dance. The lesson? Things feel dark, hopeless, impossible? Feel like Evil has won and driven Hashem out of the world?

Explaining Marriage to a 4-Year-Old

EXPLAINING MARRIAGE TO A 4-YEAR-OLD The other day, out of the blue, my 4-year-old Tsofia asked me, “Eema, who am I going to marry?” “I don’t know, sweety…Who do you want to marry?” Without hesitation, she responded, “Abba!” But then, she quickly retracted. “No, I want to marry Eema!” I smiled. “First of all, Tsofia, you have to get married to a boy, not a girl. And second of all, you can’t marry a family member.” Tsofia considered that for a while. Then she said, “Eema, are you married?” “Yes.” “Who are...
