Rabbi Avi Weinstein

A Searing Pesach of Pressburg 1943

Rabbi Shlomo Unsdorfer wrote down his sermons in a notebook that was recovered after the war, and after he had perished in Auschwitz. His brother published Reb Unsdorfer’s essays in a work entitled Siftei Shlomo (The Lips of Shlomo). It is the only document I know of that “darshens” the holocaust through the lens of Torah. His Shabbat Hagadol drasha, that I have translated may give us some perspective, and even in these times, appreciation for our bounty and blessings.

“For all who are hungry, come and eat…us.” (Siftei Shlmo)
