Rav's Message

Dear Friends,

I don't typically use this space for eulogies. But the relatively sudden and tragic loss yesterday of Rebbetzin Shelia Feinstein calls for acknowledging the void her passing has left behind.

When an older person passes, there is a profound sense of loss due to the person's long life's worth of accomplishments. When a young person passes, the loss stems from the tragedy of so much vitality and potential being snatched away, seemingly prematurely.

With the loss of Rebbetzin Feinstein, we feel both types of pain and hurt simultaneously.

She was an extraordinarily accomplished person, not only in her role as "mother of the [Staten Island] Yeshiva," as she was described multiple times at the funeral, but she was an unusually talented educator who could inspire extremely varied audiences to grow and become better people. She did not only give of herself on the communal level; there are countless stories of her advising and helping individuals with wise counsel.

And yet -- she was eternally young, and could relate to all ages. Even the children in our neighborhood sensed the tension of the past two weeks, as we davened with fervor that the Rebbetzin be allowed to remain among us. Even children cried last night at the bitter news of her passing. They knew that she was their friend as much as she was the friend of the adults. She took children seriously; they sensed that in her and loved her for it.

We daven that Hashem will grant strength to her very special husband, Rav Reuven Feinstein, and to all of her family members. As a community, we resolve to let her memory -- her concern for others, her wisdom, her love for Torah and its standard-bearers -- to continue to be a source of inspiration for us all.

With wishes for a wonderful Shabbos and a good Chodesh,

Rabbi Zvi Romm

In addition to "political" action, Israel would greatly benefit from "economic" action at this time.
One of the best ways to show your solidarity with Israel is to buy Israel bonds.
The single role of Israel Bonds is to strengthen Israel's economy.
