Webster's dictionary does not have the word to describe the Jewish People's loss today.
The Beams, Breslev Israel and Emuna Outreach are beside ourselves with grief upon hearing the bitter news of a tragedy beyond belief - the loss of Nachman and Raizy Glauber, of blessed memory, both only a tender 21 years of age from Williamsburg in Brooklyn. The couple was en route to a hospital to have their first child when a drunk driver crashed into the taxi that was taking them.
We've been flooded with letters of grieving people asking about the meaning of this. All I can say is that Nathan and Raizy were undoubtedly flawless tzaddikim whom Hashem chose as ritual sacrifices for all of Klal Yisroel. Such a tragedy obligates every single one of us to wake up, assess ourselves and return to Hashem.
The couple's last name - Glauber - is Yiddish for "believer". We have nothing else to lean on but our emuna, our belief in Hashem.
May The Almighty console the family, the community, and all the other mouners of Zion and Jerusalem, amen.
