Watch: Yidden at Zichron Moshe Dance Spontaneously with Reb Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin


As first reported by, Reb Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin is on his first visit to Eretz Yisroel since his release from prison.

Just yesterday, a most amazing incident occurred as Reb Sholom Mordechai entered the storied Zichron Moshe shul in Yerushalayim. As some mispallelim recognized the special guest from chutz la’aretz, they greeted him warmly and then broke out in spontaneous dancing, singing, “Chasdei Hashem ki lo samnu.”

Jews of different stripes locked hands and circled, celebrating now, in August, what Diaspora Jews had celebrated back in December with Sholom Mordechai’s release. The simcha was real and tangible, as the holy Yidden of the Holy City expressed their heartfelt feelings of happiness for the American counterpart who inspired them – as he did those on the other side of the ocean – with his steadfast emunah and bitachon despite his trying ordeal and daunting circumstances.

  1. Very nice.
    I am very impressed that he pulled that young man into the circle to dance with him. Kiruv is still #1 on Reb Shalom’s mind. B”H

  2. Beautiful expression of ‘Kol Yisroel Areivim’ – personally, it brings back the feelings and memory of when we all heard about his release on Chanukah and the beautiful spontaneous expression by all of us. Makes me so proud to be a Yid! How lucky we are… Chasdei Hashem Ki Lo Sumnu…

  3. Anonymous, post #3, that’s why the word אדם can never be pluralized! Yidden are ONE!
    ישראל ואורייתא וקודשא בריך הוא are all entities of ONEness! How great a people we are!
