Yitzhak Klugman (Vail)

My father-in-law's house

Minsk Mazowiecki, to which I was connected through my connections as the son-in-law of the late Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak Bibrosh, I hardly knew her thoroughly. Although our city Resbartov was geographically very close to her, I never had the chance to visit until after I got married. And even after that I did not I had the opportunity to get to know it up close, about the vibrant life there, about its people, its institutions, because after a while I returned to our city Rambertov for the usual things. During the short time I stayed there, I got to know several people who are engraved in my memory and in my heart, deep down. They stand before my eyes, because I talked You are often. Whether on the way from my father-in-law's house to Gur's Shtibel or by a direct meeting with the aim of talking about current affairs every day or matters of the original Judaism, the chain that was then in full force of organization. In order to withstand the burst and fight back her hair. Agudat Israel stormed to conquer communities, organize Schools for boys and girls in the spirit of Yisrael Saba. In Minsk I met with some of their activists, and especially with Laser Eli Lerner (Benasha published a weekly in the Polish language for religious and religious academics"). Itcha Kaplan (the son of the rabbi), Pesach HaShaan and Mr. Bona Yavdel Chaim Tovim, Bar Ahan and Bar Urayen, who is with us in Israel and occupies a respectable position in the religious community. It's hard for me to linger

On each and every one on all his qualities, all of them have the same stature and the rest of spirit. For example, Rabbi Pesach Horowitz, the watchmaker. When you walked into his shop and he raised his eyes with the vein of the mirror above his eye, you felt that this dear Jew, even though he was immersed all day in the wheels of clocks repairing them, was a thinking man and it was good to talk to him, and to consult on matters that stand in the way of the world. He learned a lot when he entered Israel

The late Aharon Bialer, who was also my sister's husband's brother-in-law, with Eliezer Eli Lerner, we sat together even after I returned to live in Rambertov and he worked in Warsaw, at the Agudath Israel Bank. He would visit me almost every week and we worked together in the spirit of the movement to save the Jewish youth and bring them under the wings of original Judaism.

However, I met not only pious and perfect Jews in Minsk, but also ordinary people. People of your people" who often visited my late father-in-law - whether to drink coffee or tea on Shabbat morning before prayer or at Kiddush Simchat Torah or on another day of Defagra. I will not forget my father-in-law's house, which was known throughout the city and the surrounding area. It was a luxurious Jewish home that did not manifest itself in luxurious furniture or other external decorations. He had inner splendor and excelled in noble and lofty qualities. It was a house that was wide open, an opening for helping others without any hint of artificiality. My father-in-law was running away from honor and was very careful not to hurt someone else's reputation. All the members of the house, the boys and girls who are with us, were also infected with all his qualities

In Israel, and those who were destroyed by the Nazi Hashemdai, may his name be blessed.

(The author wrote this list the day before his sudden death from a heart attack, on Shabbat Chol, the time of Pesach 555. Rabbi Yitzchak (Itshele) was a regular participant and speaker at the commemorations of our city's veterans and blessed the initiative to publish this book, may his memory be blessed!).
