Rabbi Shalom Lewis's blog
There was an enigmatic member of our family.
His name was Zaydel, but I never knew his connection, or how he was a part of our mishpacha. A great uncle, a distant cousin, a grandfather somehow? Whenever I asked my mother who Zaydel was, she would ignore the question, intenifying my curiosity and the mystery.
