I was recently sitting with some people and, as has happened so often in recent months, someone started singing the very popular niggun, Ve’afilu Behastarah. The moving words and tune never fail to soften the heart, providing a jolt of chizuk and emunah, a reminder that Hashem is always in control.

It was the rage of the Jewish world on Monday. From out of nowhere it seemed, everyone was emailing each other an old film clip taken at the first Knessiah Gedolah of Agudas Yisroel in Vienna in 1923. For the first time in our lives, we were able to see the Chofetz Chaim walk for a few seconds.

Several years ago, under the Bloomberg administration, a regulation was passed requiring written informed consent before any bris with metzitzah b’peh. A coalition was formed by several Orthodox groups to fight the regulation in court. After the initial motion was denied, an appeal was filed with the Second Circuit which agreed with the plaintiffs. The case was remanded to the District Court to apply the proper standard and continue the litigation.

As in many yeshivos, the yeshiva of Novardok in Bialystok had a tat, a tomchei Torah fund to support its talmidim. “With encouragement of the Chofetz Chaim,” said Rav Yaakov Galinsky, “I took care of the fund. One of my responsibilities was to go around on Purim to collect for it, but most of the people were poor and fit to receive matanos la’evyonim themselves. There was, however, one wealthy man in town, a goodhearted person who pursued tzedakah and chesed and whose house was mobbed by aniyim on Purim.

A King and the Son of a King, a Tzaddik and the Son of a Tzaddik

The Torah says, “Yitzchok went out to pray in the field before evening.” Yitzchok Avinu instituted the Minchah prayer, the tefillah we recite before the sun sets. Now, the sun has set on the life of a different Yitzchok, Rav Yitzchok Finkel zt”l, son of Rav Nosson Tzvi Finkel zt”l, the late rosh yeshiva of Yeshivas Mir-Yerushalayim.
