My Father, My Mother, My Rebbi

Riki Goldstein

Rav Michoel Ber Weissmandl is best known for his efforts to save Jews during the Holocaust, but his work after the war was no less heroic.

He’s also adopted his wife’s six abandoned siblings. While doctors have given up, Rav Chaim sends him people for brachos… because a smiling Moshe knows Hashem will pull everyone through.
