My Father, Elie Wiesel - Tablet

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 12:00:00 EST

There was a time when I could not see clearly what I had in my father. I loved him, but I saw his quiet voice as weakness, not strength. I did not want to be like him—so I felt, so I said, and so I acted. And it was at this time, when I had never been more distant from him, when I had wanted nothing more than to be free of my family’s history—that the Lubavitcher Rebbe gave my father a blessing. “One day,” the Rebbe told my father, “you will be proud of your son—he will be proud of you—and then you will both be proud of me.”...

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 12:00:00 EST

...“What about bringing salt or jam to someone moving into a new home,” offered Malcolm Barnett. “Or touching the mezuzah on the doorpost when you enter.” Both are intended as a protection of sorts, but there is a clear distinction between salt or jam (a superstition) and the mezuzah. This is where traditions sometimes get hazy. It’s important to remember we follow some practices because they are so written in the Torah, according to Rabbi Yosef Landa, director of the St. Louis Chabad. “Having a mezuzah on the door is a commandment...
