ISRAEL (VINnews) — The Karliner Rebbe fulfilled the mitzvah of Bikur Cholim when he visited IDF reservist Mordechai Shenvald, who was seriously wounded in the war. The Rebbe was joined by singer Yitzchak Meir, and together they sang “Kah Echsof”, a song composed by Rabbi Aharon “the Great” of Karlin.

Mordechai (33), son of Rabbi Eliezer Shenvald, the head of the Modiin yeshiva, discussed his injury: “I was wounded on November 2nd in the Al-Shati refugee camp. I am a combat soldier in a special unit, and on the day of the injury, we fought in the north of Gaza.

Thank G-d we shot and killed many terrorists. But then we ran out of both ammunition and gas. We wanted to go back, but then the tank didn’t start, and we were stuck.”

He added: “An anti-tank missile was fired at us. The windbreaker that is supposed to protect us opened, but when the cover opened, I suffered a severe back injury. I flew and broke 11 out of 12 ribs, and I also broke my pelvis,” he said while leaning on the walker that helps him move around. “I have a thought on why I have one rib left. It’s for my future wife because I’m still single.”
