Listen to the 22 min 30 sec mark #inspiring Midnightrabbi #inspires really at 3 am phoned in to continue the discussion to make this more reality with your INVESTMENT
Shalom,I’m so happy you got a chance to meet D…. ( M….. brother). They still need a little help getting along, but they are getting there. Maybe you can speak to him and explain to him that his brother really loves him, but the way he is now- I’m also glad you had a good Chanukah with your family. I wanted to write sooner but I didn’t want disturb your festivities of Chanukah. I don’t know if you know this, but M mentioned that he introduced k to smoking cigarettes. This is not good for any one. M…. needs to be guided off of smoking- this is one the major areas we had difficulties with- we hate it, his brother fights with him bitterly on this and M…s bad Asthma. Is there anything that can be done to get him “unhooked?” Also if we can work on his overall appearance and stress the importance of first impressions. How people view others at first just on their appearance. He needs to look sharp, clean, and well kept. He needs his hair cut and styled, – and not wear a hat all the time- (if he does). Also explain to him that not everyone has to know that he doesn’t always eat kosher ( he mentioned that to my cousins- ) he should understand that they will only remember that part of the visit- ( they are not observant). I do hear that there are some changes- positive ones and I am grateful for those changes- but as you know there is still more work to be done. M…. also has to realize that he is an adult and will be held accountable for his actions- unlike when he was younger.
Thank you again,
Dear Rabbi EliYou are all welcome. It was an honor and our pleasure to share with your family. You and your family have made Y…. so happy that we hope we have done the same for yours. The only thing we ask of Mrs. Goldsmith is that she keeps our family in her prayers when she lights the shabbos candles. I know we pray for yours to be safe, see yiddish nachas from the children, and that the Midnight
Rabbi continues to do his wonderful work kessed with all of you by his side.
Keep in touch
Have a good Shabbos
Dear reb Eliezer Goldsmith “the midnight
rabbi” Shlita,I don’t know if you heard about an article in a widely read Jewish newspaper in America. The article basically was trying to discredit neveh and other similar programs catering to kids coming to have a year in Israel. The author obviously was bent against neveh and had to mention ………. as the place where a boy ODed a few years back. Luckily she wasn’t totally ludicrous and actually quoted the ….., Rav …….., on some very crucial issues. He definitely saved face for the yeshiva. I wanted to let you know he mentioned you as being a vital player in the Yeshiva doing all that is possible to provide a safe and constructive environment for these kids at risk. I think you were the biggest part of saving face for the yeshiva. SEE
Hashem should give you the strength to continue your Avoda of saving these Neshamos. I hope the Yeshiva will be able to keep you aboard. I know how much Rav Tzvi Meyer holds of what you do, he even spent TWENTY FIVE minutes on the phone with me to better understand the yeshiva and your role in it. For a normal person that would be like spending a month on the phone.
PLEASE READ A GREAT RECOMMENDATION FROM DR DAVID PORTOWICZ WHO SAW OUR INSPIRED WORK!
MIDNIGHTRABBI KNOWS THE POWER OF A CORRECT CONNECTING HUG, IN A TIME NO-ONE ELSE IS THERE FOR YOUR CHILDREN!
