Today is the shloshim - the 30th day - following the horrific murder of Rabbi Gavriel and Rebbitzen Rivka Holtzberg, may Hashem avenge their blood.

May the deeds of these kedoshim (holy ones) who were killed for reaching out to their fellow Jew, for spreading light and Torah, stand in the merit of all klal Yisroel.

Thank you for posting this. Some people think "life goes on" the way it used to be before this terrible tragedy. But I respectfully disagree that it CANNOT go on the same way; each one of us needs to "add-on more goodness and kindness" to our efforts to bring the Geulah. Let not these Kedoshim be for naught, which was a sentiment expressed by a member of one of the families.

I have iPhoto on my computer and because it was easy to do, I have a small album dedicated to these brave, courageous, and admirable people. I don't want to forget what they represented; and especially don't want to forget about little Moshele.

Everyone has 'family' albums, so I have now added to mine.

A good Chodesh to all.

thanks for posting.

there are two important things we must remember:

the level of tzaddikim that the holtzberg's were, we can only admire them and try to emulate their dvekus.

and, sadly, we must also remember the brutality that they were shown. the terrorists butchered and tortured them in a particularly disgusting fashion that is not fit for this blog.
