It is impossible to count all the Shabbat guests, Rabbi Mordechai Machlis has received in his house over the past 30 years. Those who have been to the Machlises, know exactly what I am talking about.
The Machlises continue their Shabbat hospitality but what many people don’t know: Henny Machlis, Rabbi Mordechai’s wife, is seriously ill. The Rabbi himself doesn’t speak about his wife’s condition but a group of women is arranging an urgent prayer service at the Kotel (Western Wall) this Wednesday:
Although I haven’t been to the Machlises for quite a while, I do run into the Rabbi from time to time. And sometimes I go to his Shiurim. What I know so far is that Henny Machlis is being treated in New York and that the Rabbi is going back and forth.
