Just a Little Thought - WAKE UP YIDDEN!

Понедельник, 24. Август, 2009 - 5:13

Probably anybody who was ever a camper in any Gan Yisroel knows this song: 

“Wake up, Yidden, from the dream of Golus, get ready to greet Moshiach Tzidkeinu (our Righteous Moshiach.)  Redemption is coming swiftly towards us; Behold he is standing right outside our door."

Here in Crimea, we are going through an extremely difficult time now.  We never had it easy here, but somehow we always managed to squeak along.  Always in debt, but managing.  But for how long can we not pay salaries? Tomorrow morning we need to know -- only if we have managed to pay the staff, school will be able to open on September 1st.  We have turned to everyone we can think of -- individuals, organizations, following up on every lead.  And nearly every door was closed to us.  THE CRISIS.  Every day we hear about another supporter with financial woes.  Even those who had promised us funds -- the funds have dried up.  I just called still another organization, hoping that they had a supporter who might have saved the school -- but he hasn't even been able to give them the money he usually gives for their own salaries for the last few months. 

WHY?  Why is everyone being hit so hard?  What does G-d want from us?  The Lubavitcher Rebbe said that we have already done most of what needs to be done for Moshiach to be revealed, and it is supposed to happen very, very soon already!  Maybe we were just too comfortable in golus (exile,) and when nothing else worked, G-d felt He had to take us out of our comfort zone and shake us up a little, so that we would ALL finally start to pray.  And not just to pray for our own meager and not-so-meager needs, but for the needs of Klal Yisroel, of the entire Jewish people.  It is time for everyone to turn to our loving Father in heaven and ask Him to please have mercy on us already, so that we may see the revelation of Moshiach NOW!

“Wake up, Yidden, from the dream of Golus, get ready to greet Moshiach Tzidkeinu (our Righteous Moshiach.)  Redemption is coming swiftly towards us; Behold he is standing right outside our door."

PS: If you are able to donate something -- anything -- please do it right now.  You can click "Donate" in the top left corner of this page to pay by credit card.  If you live in or near Crown Heights, please call 1-917-501-5906 or 1-718-774-5620, and someone can pick up your donation.  At the same number (or by clicking "Donate" and arriving at another page of this site,) you can also get wiring information.  Please look deep and see how much you can help with, so we can stay open for these children who have until now been totally alienated from Judaism.  And every mitzvah will bring Moshiach one step closer!  Thank you!
