Fallen generation

GYE Corp. Friday, 27 April 2012

I recently read an amazing story of an older couple from Russia. The wife called the Chevrah Kadisha and told them that her husband had died. They came and took the body and prepared him for burial. The next day, the Chevrah Kadisha came to the Beis Hakvaros and no one was there besides for the old lady. They quickly arranged for a Minyan and said Kaddish. Afterwards, the wife began speaking to her departed husband and she said: "My dear husband, when you get up to Shamayim and they ask you why we didn't have children, tell them it is because when we lived in Russia we couldn't keep the Halachos of Taharas Hamishpacha, and by the time we arrived in Eretz Yisrael we were too old to have children".

When the Chevrah Kaddisha heard this, they all began to weep.

Yidden, Holy Yidden! Do you understand what that means? They lived their entire youthful years together without ever being together as husband and wife - for the sake of Hashem's Mitzvos! Who can imagine the self-sacrifice that Jews had throughout the generations to upkeep Hashem's Mitzvos and guard the holy character of the jewish people?

What a fallen generation we live in today. But take heart. We here on this e-mail list and on the forum are a spark of light that still shines in a dark world. On the GuardUrEyes network we experience the sincerity of yidden striving for Kedusha against all odds. So join us today in giving Hashem our hearts!
