It was a particularly difficult time for our family. My husband had already met with him and now he wants to know if I wanted to meet. When I walked into the office, the first thing he said to me was, “you can cry, it’s ok”. When we finished speaking, he said, “you can come back again, as many times as you need to”. Those 2 things were just what I needed to hear and were very comforting to me.
One other thing that stands out from our meeting was his suggestion that I write a list of some good things that I can find during this challenging time. I listened to him and after writing 25 things on my list, I stopped, knowing that the Rav had succeeded in showing me the gifts that Hashem provided during a very challenging time.
Thank you Rav Malinowitz
