Rabbi Samuel Cywiak told me stories of how before the Holocaust, he and his father would travel to Gera, a small town outside of Warsaw, Poland. They made this journey every year to see their Rebbe, the Gerer Rebbe, for the High Holidays. I could tell by the smile on his face and sparkle in his eyes as he told these stories, that these trips to Gera were very special for Rabbi Cywiak. Something he’ll never forgot or want to forget. They were joyous, spiritual, humble, and loving experiences for him, and all involved.
