Rabbi Mordechai and his wife Henny have been, for the past 30 years, turning their tiny apartment into a guest house for thousands of people. Every weekend the Rabbi and his wife host meals for hundreds of guests in their small apartment. They literally cook all hours of the night to prepare enough food for everyone who comes. They also help people find places to stay.
Having spent many late Thursday nights cooking with the Rabbi's daughters for over a hundred guests a week, I have personally witnessed the extraordinary dedication of the Rabbi and his wife. Every single week they open their house to hundreds of homeless, destitute people with no where else to go!
One story about Rabbi Mordechai stands out among the many. There was a homeless man who used to come to their Jerusalem apartment every week. He was extremely needy since he had lost his house. Rabbi Mordechai, who had no room left in his apartment, agreed to let this poor homeless man sleep in his (Rabbi Mordechai's) car every night until he was able to get back on his feet! Eventually, he just gave the man his car for good.
The incredible kindness they have shown to thousands of people is unreal. The amount of dedication they have put in is something that has to be seen to be believed.
