The Widow's Miracle
The visitor from Kibbutz Ramot Menashe came all the way to Bnei Brak to tell her story to Rabbi Yitzchak Zilberstein, the rav of the Ramat Elchanan community.
A severe thunderstorm had struck the kibbutz causing severe damage to the duplex homes. Only one roof remained untouched by the storm. Although the other half of the duplex was hit, the part in which a widow lived remained unscathed.
When the storm subsided the widow's neighbors came to visit her. She told them that only a few days earlier she had decided to make a radical change in her life and become observant. One can imagine the impact of such an incident on a secular kibbutz.
