R’ Yisroel Yaakov Lubchansky zt”l

During the second world war when Rabbi Yisroel Yaakov Lubchansky was incarcerated in the ghetto, his face constantly shined with joy.  Wherever he went, he spread words of encouragement and hope. Rabbi Ephraim Oshry asked him how he could be so happy when the situation was so grim. Rabbi Lubchansky replied, “By nature I am easily frightened. Why should others have to suffer from my fears? I exert myself to remove any signs of fear so I should not cause anyone else to become afraid.” ~ Hameoros Hagedolim
