A true, selfless hero in our generation

Thank you more than I can possibly say for sharing the life and selfless exploits of this man. Hopefully, one day, I will meet him and have the opportunity to shake his hand, and maybe even receive a bracha from him.

An incredible story.

Mr. Mekonen truly stands as a redeemer of Hebrews, like Moses.
