Baruch Matir Asurim - Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin Is Home!

The Sy Deals Group Administrators opened up a Whats App Group last night titled "Rubashkin Free, Pics/Vids"  to share thousands of pictures and videos, and to witness something that was so amazing - The Achdut of K'Lal Yisrael!

We were sent Pictures and Video clips from Israel, Monsey, Boro Park, Lakewood, and countless other places from around the world.

It is appropriate to say Mi K'Amcha Yisrael. Thousands and thousands of people around the world were genuinely happy for this amazing man who no doubt has Chen, something according to the Gemara in Sukkah Hashem grants to People who do Tzedaka and Ahavat Chessed.

One of the people posted this on the Group that I would like to Share:

My dear Sisters and Brothers.

In the Mincha Shemonei Esrei of Shabbos we proudly proclaim;

"Ato Echod V'Shimcho Echod" You (Hashem) are one and your name is one, "U'Mee K'amcho Yisroel Goy Echod" and who is like your (Hashems) nation, a united people. 

I am taking the liberty to write to you, because what we saw today is not only an important part of history, but also proof of who we truly are, a "Goy Echad" a United people, we are all connected, we are all truly one, as Rav SM Rubashkin shlita proclaimed together with hundreds or perhaps thousands of Women,  Men, teens and children "Shema Yisroel, Hashem Elokeinu, Hashem Echod".

Have any of you heard the name "Mark Denny"?

I'm sure most of you have not, let me introduce him, he is a 46 year old African American man who has been in a NYState prison for the last 30 years, yes THIRTY years, falsely accused of horrific crimes that he supposedly didn't do.

Where am I going with this you may ask? So here goes, today Wednesday, 20 December (just a few hours prior to Rubashkin's release) a Judge in downtown Brooklyn's Supreme Court, dismissed his case, and he walked out of the Courthouse, a free man.

Who was there to greet him? Who danced in the streets? How many people were there? Let me tell you, not even a handful, his mom was there, his attorney and perhaps one or two  more family members.

Just a few hours later, as Rubashkin was being released in a small town in  upstate NY, there were people that never met him from Bloomingburg, to greet him and sing, and as soon as Jews heard the good news, Yidden of all ages, in all Jewish communities, all over the Globe from the US east to west coast, from Europe  to Israel and anywhere  in between, from Chasidish to Litvish, to Modern Orthodox, all took to the streets and to Shuls to dance and to thank Hashem for this great miracle and to partake in this great Simcha of a man they never met, and perhaps never will meet, a great number of people aren't even intimately familiar with the "Rubashkin" case, yet, K'ish Echod - B'lev Echod, like one person, like one heart, we cried tears of joy, we sang and danced.  Why? Because Klal Yisroel, each and every Jew is interconnected and part of this great puzzle, this great Mosaic called "Am Yisrael" , we truly showed that we are the "Goy Echod"

Let us take this Achdus and Simcha to heart, and let this feeling towards you fellow Yid, carry forward and stay with us, until the true "Echod" will in this merit send Moshiach to take us the "Goy Echod"  with song and dance, B'Halel V'hodoyu L'hashem Echod,  as am Am Echod, into our Homeland Eretz-Yisroel speedily. Amen. 

With blessings, Mi K'amcho Yisroel.
