Why did I not visit Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin in prison? Only after his release did I realize that he had been imprisoned in New York and not Iowa. I could so easily have gone there. I know what it means to visit a prisoner. Decades ago, when Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis was scheduled to speak to Jewish prisoners in Rikers Island Prison in New York City, an emergency arose and she asked me to fill in for her.
“A new king arose over Egypt, who did not know of Joseph… and [the Egyptians] became disgusted because of the Children of Israel.” (Exodus 1:8-12) This is amazing. How could Joseph have been forgotten? He saved Egypt!
Working Towards Moshiach
We live in chaotic times. No secret there. But with Torah as our guide, we can rise above the tumult, just as Noah’s Ark rose above the floodwaters of a drowning world.
Organized according to the weekly pershah, Working Towards Moshiach is a spiritual boost in the arm against troubled times. Roy Neuberger’s inspiring mix of Torah insights, stories and personal reflections provides the beacon of light and encouragement we all need to see beyond today’s headlines.
