Rabbi Yosef Shlomo Kahaneman (1886-1969), The Ponovicher Rov of blessed memory, saved orphaned Jewish children from Catholic orphanages after the close of World War II. Although the priests and nuns denied that there were any Jewish children there, The Rov - accompanied by American officers - visited the orphanages at bedtime. He would call out "Shema Yisroel" and instinctly children raised their hands to cover their eyes, while crying in Yiddish, "Mama! Mama!"
The holy Skolener Rebbe of blessed memory saved children in like fashion, one of whom lives in Ashdod and frequents our synagogue.
My dear and esteemed friend Yaacov Shwekey sings a moving rendition of the above story in "Shema Yisroel". In answer to all the Holocaust deniers, here is Yaacov singing with the backdrop of photos and film clips from the Holocaust. If you want to know why we need unshakable emuna and our uncompromising presence in our holy Land of Israel, see this (don't be discouraged by the first 60 seconds which tells the story of Rabbi Kahaneman in Hebrew). This is a must see:
Maggid Dovbear bar Lieb – “We are a little over 3 weeks away from one as wicked and evil as Hitler Yemach Shmo from being elected Emperor of the United States. He has a 50% chance of winning, receiving about 65% of the Jewish vote. I have never been witness to anything so confusing in my life.
The man will in his 2nd term quickly become Emperor by Executive Orders making Congress totally irrelevant. I can't close my eyes to this great evil that is coming on the world...if he is re-elected.
I feel like William Shatner in a Twilight Zone episode watching the Gremlin take apart the engine of a plane, trying to get others on board to pay attention. Yet, this one is much worse. This evil man has a monkey god in his pocket that he carries around from his childhood. The name of the avodah zarah (“strange worship or idolatry”) is Hanuman (Indian deity as Supreme Being).
Rav Akiva Tatz in one of his shiurim asks, "Who is Amalek? It is his name. He is Amal Kof (the one who toils like a monkey)." He believes that he has no neshama (soul) that is judged before G-d. He thinks of himself as a glorified Ape, the closest species physically to Man. And the present Pres. wants the soul of Hanuman, the Monkey god to take over his body!!
Look carefully at the name of this avodah zarah. Perhaps you can reread the Book of Esther and can get the point. Keep in mind, Ns and Ms are linguistically interchangeable. So Hanuman becomes Mehuman (a eunuch of Ahasurus, one of seven chamberlains), the name of Haman from chapter one in Esther. Fine, let the Gremlin rip up the engine. I am just sitting here writing this while it is all happening. G-d help us all.
Commentary by Maggid Dovbearbarlieb
Instinctively a majority of Americans are scared of the future of the United States of America. The Founding Forefathers had such a deep vision of clarity of what America could offer to the world and truly has done. Yet, as “nations rise and nations fall” the G-d of Israel is sending his judgments down upon this land.
Whether America becomes the United States of Islam and our government will invoke the Sharia Laws upon this land, there are two events that we know with great clarity, the final Exodus of the Lost Ten Tribes of the House of Israel will now be summoned during an epic of great disasters and catastrophes and that redemption with come by B’ito, or with great and harsh judgment “in its appointed time”. At this time the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel will call out to the G-d of Israel, “save us! We are ready to be your people!” The G-d of Israel will answer and redeem them.
