A very busy day in a Polish shtetel

Today, on the yahrzeit of the Noam Elimelech, thousands of Jews will again return to his Polish shtetel to pray and weep at his grave. The only one left untouched by the Nazis.

My memoir of 2004 will describe much the same scenes, and the afterthoughts re our people seem to be  as fitting today as they were 9 years ago.
