Upon finding his roots all the way to the author of “Lecho Dodi” ob”m, he forsake the wealthy Arabic family he was part of, making his way full of mesirus-nefesh to Judaism, truly bringing on the golden chain of Torah and serving G-d.
Now, he alone, asks the question:
Will I be able to set up my own Jewish home?
Read on the story-life stormy or Rabbi Yehuda Elkabatz Shlit"a, who went from the Arabic town of "Sah'nin" to the "Mirrer Yeshiva".
Please open your hearts generously and help us friends of R' Yehudah in the Mirrer Yeshiva help R' Yehuda get married.
Will Rabbi Yehuda Alkabetz merit to set up a loyal Jewish home?
It has been so bitter and hard for Rabbi Yehuda Alkabetz, to swim through those harsh waves, during the last years.
His father wouldn’t let go of him so quickly. Using many methods, good or bad, he tried to drag him back to his village, but like a lion, Yehuda remained strong. In the merit of his holy ancestors, he found a match and is getting prepared, with G-d’s help, to build his own Jewish home on the forthcoming 20th of Sivan.
Rabbi Yehuda has left his home, without money or other means, setting out on his long journey to return to his holy roots. But his pockets are empty. He simply cannot carry the burden without help.
He is absolutely penniless, and he turns to us, to serve as the messengers of Hashem to help him at this special time in his life.
Dear Jewish brethren! Rabbi Yehuda uses the words of his holy ancestor: רב לך שבת בעמק הבכא, I have been sitting long enough in the valley of tears, and now I want to build my home! והוא יחמול עליך חמלה, and he will have mercy on you.
Please, Klal Yisroel, have pity on me! Give me what I need in order to build a Jewish home!
May Hashem Yisborach have mercy on you, as you fulfill כמשוש חתן על כלה, as the joy of a choson with his kallah, then it will certainly be ישיש עליך אלקיך, Hashem Yisborach will be happy with you!
