The Chofetz Chaim

It brought joy to everyone who saw it. People couldn’t exactly put their finger on why, but a warm feeling came over everyone who watched it.

The film is not clear and the Chofetz Chaim doesn’t look up as he is seen walking; but it is fascinating, nonetheless.

The Chofetz Chaim!

Did you hear that there is a video of the Chofetz Chaim?
The Chofetz Chaim!

We saw him walk.
He was real.

We all study his seforim.
He is the rebbi of Klal Yisroel.
We have been hearing stories about him for as long as we can remember.
The Chofetz Chaim!

We have seen pictures of him, we have read books about him.
We had never seen him move and now we did.
Oh, wow!
The Chofetz Chaim!

The Kohein Gadol. The malach. The kadosh.
The tzaddik. The talmid chochom.
The Chofetz Chaim!

We look at him and our hearts melt.
Our neshamos are touched.
We have a hirhur teshuvah.
The Chofetz Chaim!

Did you see the clip of the Chofetz Chaim?
I am changed.
I saw the Chofetz Chaim.
I became closer to him.
I felt him.

He walked among us.
On this earth.
His feet touched the ground much as ours do, but rosho magia hashomaymah.
Short and demure, he was a skyscraper.
The Chofetz Chaim!

What wouldn’t we do to see him?
What wouldn’t we do to become like him?
What wouldn’t we do to support him?
The Chofetz Chaim!

The reverence we have for him.
The love.
The warmth.
The Chofetz Chaim!
