Shimon HaTzadik was from the remnant of the Men of the Great Assembly and he used to say: “On three things the world stands on Torah, Service (Avodah), and Acts of Kindness (Gemilas Chassadim).” (Chapters of the Fathers)
BaltimoreJewishLife reports how Rabbi Moshe Hauer, Rabbi Shmuel Silber, Rabbi Binyamin Marwick and other volunteers boarded a bus during the early morning hours to assist the besieged community of Seagate.
...despite the fact that Rabbi Silber was aboard the bus at 4:45 AM today, the Daf Yomi shiur at Suburban Orthodox did not skip a beat and was "piped in" from the bus to the shul's Beis Medrash. Aside from the people who joined the group heading to Seagate, NY, to help those who are still without power or in need of assistance, the attendance was nearly 100%. The audio transmission was virtually flawless as speakers set up on the bima in the Beis Medrash were connected to a mobile phone and those in attendance enjoyed the Rav's shiur given from the bus.
