"Always My Malky” rocked the world. Let it rock! Let everyone on board hold on and look around to see what is happening around us, see the storm that is raging out there, and see all those drowning neshamah’lech… Each situation is unique and each one has to be dealt with individually. No mesivta or Bais Yaakov can be told “you must accept this child.” But there are scores and scores of good, eidel, well-behaved students who are falling through the cracks only because they don’t shine scholastically. Much more can and must be done for them"

Always My Malky /Mishpacha Issue 672
"Meyer Haas did, indeed, proudly live his US military life, making a kiddush Hashem serving his country and their people. When he was niftar recently, his only son, Daniel, did not say Kaddish. Daniel was killed in the Lebanon War in Israel, 35 years ago. He died al kiddush Hashem serving his country and his people. Two soldiers, a father and a son, two heroes — each serving in Hashem’s army."
