I cried & I cried Again

Filed under: deep reflections — Reb Moshe @ 12:37 am

During the first day of Yom Tov, I had wondered why I had not cried at all this Yom Tov and then suddenly I cried and I cried some more. What did I cry about? I cried for all those people in the world who have been scattered to the 4 corners of the world during this exile. People like my new friend Victor whom live in places devoid of all sense of Jewishness and value. How are they supposed to serve Hashem in such places. I cried for so many people who write me and asked me to draw them close to Hashem, and I wonder why Hashem makes it so hard for them. How can all these people be expected to return to Hashem when they come from so little and are so far. I cried and then I wailed… I could not stop my tears…

Then I cried when I thought of all the Tzaddikim and their struggles. How they try to save lives and are so troubled in the process with their own health, financial situations and how large the task is that they have to accept upon themselves. I cried and I could not stop the entire second day of Yom Tov over these two matters. I find no comfort.


  1. Can you do a video for us BT’s out there on the Siddur? Specifically it would be good if you could do a step by step breakdown, ie; what is said when and why and where it orginated from. (the difference bettween the weekday maariv and the shabbos maariv and etc.) Of course I could ask my rabbi but I am more interested in what you could do with this topic and I believe it would be very beneficial to a wider audience. Obviously it be fairly lengthy but you wouldnt really need to go to someone’s kever for it, you could do it from home.
