We present- Machlis Presents lol!
This blog is a small way of showing your appreciation, at time where the ways of kindness is what will aid our people more than we realize.
My life was changed and we all know of many others, thanks to your open house on Shabbos /Shabbat and your kind words of inspiration.
Many years ago we were looking for a place to pray and eat for Shabbos morning.
We found our way to your Minyan and prayed with simcha. Then you kindly invited us all back to your house for a meal. The house was overflowing with guests which were all happy to be there. And we enjoyed the food and comfort. You even encouraged people like me to speak and try to inspire us all. I even remember what I spoke about. It was to do with the spiritual connection we can all gain with music and song! A Bridge between the physical and spiritual.
After I was married and living in Jerusalem, my parents came to visit I prayed at the Kotel with my father Shabbos morning. My father had a beautiful new Tallis (pray shawl) and I asked him where did u get that from, he winked at me and said he just bought it from the Arab Shuk! And my dad winked and carried on praying. Oih vey, my soul cried in me, its Shabbos and u cant but this then!
Anyhow, we finished praying a great prayer service and my father and I had blessed the jewish people together twice as we are both Kohanim. He turned to Rabbi Machlis and thanked him, while handing the beautiful new Tallis (pray shawl). “Thanks for letting me borrow this for the prayer service” and Good Shabbos Rabbi” as he winked at me again, and we smiled together within. Lol !
This is from the Rabbi’s team which you should support to keep up their important work for us all!
“Thanks for getting in touch, Midnight Rabbi.
