My father gave his life helping to preserve Judaism in communist Russia; thus his Yahrzeit has great significance for all Jews – especially when we see the fruits of his self-sacrifice continuing to bear fruit today, with countless Jews from the Soviet Union observing Torah and Mitzvos.

20 Menachem Av, 5745 • August 7, 1985
Disc 26, Program 101

Event Date: 20 Av 5745 - August 07, 1985

My father gave his life helping to preserve Judaism in communist Russia; thus his Yahrzeit has great significance for all Jews – especially when we see the fruits of his self-sacrifice continuing to bear fruit today, with countless Jews from the Soviet Union observing Torah and Mitzvos.

His passing did not lessen his success in spreading Judaism; but to the contrary: Now, in addition to his Torah writings, we also know the inspiring account of how he gave his life for Torah, Mitzvos and his fellow Jews, and this only intensifies the impact of his life’s work.

Every year that more Jews study his works, and are inspired by his example, his soul is not only lifted to ever greater heights; his influence grows, permeates the world, and brings great salvation.

Researching my ancestors who lived in the Pale of Settlement, I found out about Pogroms & Conscription & Maylaws & the Haskala movement and all of the oppressive efforts against Jews in Eastern Europe. I also have learned a little about the righteous efforts and sacrifices of some, like the Rebbe Levi Yitzchak Schneerson, in defense of Jewish persecution. My Great Grandparents who emigrated to America were observant, but my Grandfather who Emigrated and my parents who were born here were not. I think it's maybe because of the Haskala movement that I was brought up with no religion, but I am grateful to the sacrifices of those who bravely stood up against the push for assimilation. Thanks to the Chabad network of the past who may have directly helped my ancestors and Thanks to the Chabad website that has helped me discover the inheritance of my Jewish roots. It's Friday and I look forward to lighting candles later tonight.
Shabbat Shalom! Reply
