Beneath the rubble of the Warsaw Ghetto, a rare manuscript was found. It was the personal diary of the Piazecna Rebbe, Kalonymus Kalman Shapira HY”D. Below is an excerpt:
“What is missing in my life? Simply to be a Jew. I appear in my eyes like a meticulously painted portrait, with only one thing missing...the neshama. Master of the World, who sees beyond the external facade, I confess that I feel so distant from You. All I want is for You to draw me near and allow me to convert so that I can be a real and authentic Jew."
