I would like to meet with you

I just viewed your video about your father and was naturally very moved by it. I was referred to it, specifically, because my parents, a'h, were also from Salucz. My father's name was Sholam Berger, a'h, and my mother's name was Esther Berger (Gottesman), a'h. My grandfather, Rabbi Yehuda Gottesman, a'h, I was told was the melamed of the town.
My wife and I will, i'yh, be coming to Eretz Yisroel after Tisha B'Av for a niece's wedding. Can we possibly arrange a meeting?
Thank you.

The Good from the Bad

Shalom Rabbi Weiss
Many years ago I met a man at Yeshiva Centre in Sydney who said to me "Every Jew has a story".
On the one hand it is distressingly sad that such an inspiring story of your father should come from such horror, and on the other hand from the horror came an inspiring story that gives hope.
May you be blessed in seeing the coming of Messiah.
