plz contact me on this email. I have a story to share.

I have a story to share about my father זצ"ל. Today is the 8th Yartzheight of my father's passing. My father was a simple jew in Manchester U.K. I tell this story on his yartzheight and many are inspired by it. It is the story of one man's devotion to the Torah in an orthodox shul in Glasgow Scotland. My father grew up secular and over the years became Torah observant and became affiliated with the Stein Court Orthodox shul in Manchester U.K.

Powerful Story beautifully presented

How inspiring - I wish I knew how to transmit the power and sentiment to this generation. I am in awe of this man who risked his life to put on tefillin and say Shma every day, knowing full well that, if caught, he could quickly be put to death.
May he continue to live til 120, be well and inspire others to thank GD in every moment that we live and breathe.

This was such an amazing story..I could not help but shed tears.People have no idea what hardship is. What the Jewish people and other people endured durning the holocaust pains me no my core. Then to see a story like this where HaShem strengthened his child to be able to stay steadfast in his love is truly inspiring Thank yu for sharing this amazing story.
