Rabbi Kilimnick's Pesach Message

I am writing this message from Yerushalayim as I look out my window facing the Jaffa Gate and the Tower of David. The ancient walls capturing the beauty and holiness of the Old City are most impressive and the great merit in life that Nechie and I have to be able to look upon its greatness each day we are here is due to the friendship and kindness of our machatanim Alex and Vera (ZT’L) Hornstein.


The Inner Reality

I truly hope that by the time you read this message, the winter cold is a distant memory. Even if April brings sunny days in the high forties I will be ecstatic. For many, this winter has us wondering if we are just meant to live in the cold year round. Summer seems like a distant dream of years past where people once walked outside with cotton shirts and mesh shorts, where birds would chirp and fire hydrants would be visible. However, now that I think of it, I might feel the same way in the summer when I long for hot cocoa and sweaters. I hope that doesn’t happen.
