our rabbis I dont know what we would do without our Rabbi Krinsky-- he educates my two Jewish boys, my youngest wants to be a rabbi- studies each day.
we were in the middle of a terrible flood out in our home, without Chabad-- we would not have been helped--my rabbi means the world to us--he teaches my sons the way of our people--the right way--and i know they will never depart from their jewish herritage--Ese Tov Hashem--G-d is so good to give us our Rabbi and Chabad
I pray for Chabad to be everywhere, especially where there are Jewish Emas with Jewish sons wanting to be Rabbis for Chabad--shalom Reply
