Thousands of people in Nahariya in northern Eretz Yisroel and Chicago, Illinois owe their spiritual lives to two shluchim who dedicated their lives to drawing them close to Judaism and preparing their cities to greet Moshiach. * Numerous people sadly accompanied Rabbi Daniel Moskowitz a”h, shliach in Illinois, and R’ Yisroel Boruch Butman a”h, shliach in Nahariya at their funerals. * Ad Masai?
Ariel Zilber was one of Israel’s most revered singers and song writers for decades until he became a Lubavitcher Chassid and made his religious and shleimus ha’aretz views public. Since then, he has been ostracized. He almost received a lifetime achievement award from ACUM (the Israeli version of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) but was ultimately denied due to his political beliefs. * In a talk with Beis Moshiach, R’ Zilber discussed the changes in his life, about the courage to go against the stream, about the long journey to get acquainted with the inner world of Chabad and about his passionate connection to the Rebbe MH”M.

Rabbi Pinchas Kirschenzaft hit the brakes at the last possible moment, but the bus behind him slammed into the family car, crushing it completely. As a result, the two cars in front went flying – one into the opposite lane, the other on top of the car containing the four members of the Kirschenzaft family, including two small children. The drama, the horrific accident, the Ahavas Yisroel, and the great miracles – as told by the Baal HaMaaseh.
