Tafilin wasn’t damaged from fire

Family // December 3, 2021

Our personal נס חנוכה!! On the 6th day of חנוכה last year, my son Avrohom was headed home from yeshiva. While walking home, he stumbled upon a man outside Felder’s shul who asked him to join as the 10th for a minyan of maariv. Since he had not yet davened, he was glad to join. The following morning as Avrohom got ready to leave for yeshiva, he noticed his תפלין was missing. He started to process previous night's events as he searched for the תפלין and remembered about the incident in which occurred last night. He davened at Felder's Shul. He anxiously rushed to reclaim his תפלין and noticed flashing lights and clouds of smoke directed towards Felder's shul. As he approached the scene, firefighters were battling the large flames while dealing with the heavy smoke. The shul, sadly, was burning down right in front of his eyes. It was self-understood that the הייליגע תפלין and all the sacred Sifrei Torahs of the shul was now burnt to ash. He thanked Hashem for everything He had done for him. And that he was safe b"h. With the sad news, Avrohom then reached out to his father, who immediately ordered a brand new pair of beautiful תפלין. On Thursday, October 7th, 2021, I received a phone call from an anonymous number. The conversation discussed the steps towards rebuilding the Felder’s Shul. It has begun with the building being demolished. Then, the search team started the recovery of any retrievable items. Miraculously, my son's תפלין was found under the debris, that had fallen during the fire, which kept the תפלין in excellent condition. The news was extremely unexpected but filled our family with joy. I called my son home from yeshiva to come celebrate our miracle, he then took his tefillin right over to our סופר. This ערב חנוכה we got the good news our תפלין is in perfect condition THANK YOU HASHEM!!

I’d like to express myself and say: THANK YOU HASHEM

Family // November 24, 2021

I’d like to express myself and say: THANK YOU HASHEM for everything that "you did", "you do" and "will do" with me and my entire family. THANK YOU HASHEM for everything that I went through in the past few weeks. THANK YOU HASHEM that I lost my job. THANK YOU HASHEM for those times that I did have some side work to receive some extra income. THANK YOU HASHEM for all those times that I did receive money at that perfect time. THANK YOU HASHEM that it went smoothly and easy. THANK YOU HASHEM that this all happened at the time that all covid-19 benefit claims are over. THANK YOU HASHEM for helping me shop for some stuff that I needed desperately before this all happened (otherwise I probably wouldn’t have bought them for the next while). THANK YOU HASHEM that part of my tax return refund of 2020 wasn’t refunded yet. THANK YOU HASHEM that some governmental paperwork that I’ve file in June 2021 wasn’t processed yet. THANK YOU HASHEM that so far I’m still able to cover my expenses without any source of income. THANK YOU HASHEM for giving me the opportunity to realize that everything that you do is for our good. THANK YOU HASHEM for giving me and my spouse the strength to stay strong and overcome the situation and support each other. And now I say: THANK YOU HASHEM for the time when I’ll Iy"h find a good positional, good paying, good potential, good environmental, good location job. "THANK YOU HASHEM ALWAYS"

I don’t know how to thank hashem for the miracle that happened over shabbas.

Family // November 15, 2021


I don’t know how to thank hashem for the miracle that happened over shabbas. It was was shabbas afternoon it was raining hard and in the middle there was a huge thunder and lighting that hit it sounded like something landed on the house and some lights shut off. It was really frightening we checked around everything seemed ok and we figured we would check it out after shabbas. Motzei shabbas came I looked out the window and saw a ton of lights and fire engines and cops by my next door neighbor where tons of smoke was coming out of everywhere. Somehow the house was on fire possible from the lightening. We had some lights broken and a few other things that my husband was able to fix since he is an electrician but that is nothing compared to my neighbors destroyed house! I can’t stop thanking hashem enough!!!

I applied for a job offer and with help of Hashe-m I was granted an interview which went well.

Business // November 11, 2021

*כי חסדך גדול עלי* I applied for a job offer and with help of Hashe-m I was granted an interview which went well. A day later as I called to get to the next step, the manager asked for a BA or school degree which I didn’t have. She immediately told me, sorry, we were under the impression that you had one otherwise we wouldn’t have interviewed you. I contacted my Yeshiva which I attended over 35 years ago and asked for a Yeshiva degree. They had quite a difficult time to get it. After a couple of days, I accepted to Thank Hashe-m if they find it and send it. Sure enough it worked out after much toil. *Thank You Hashe-m always*
