It will soon be 120 years since the birth of...

SABA! (Refer to blog of July 6, '08 from Lazer Na Nach or

In a matter of days, we will be reading of the passing of Moshe Rabbeinu who lived exactly 120 years who started and ended his earthly existance on 7 Adar. Interestingly, 7 Adar is also the birthday of Rabbi Moshe Feinstein ZTVK'L who gave his Haskama on Saba's Petek.

In any event, we will be commemorating Saba's Yahrtzeit in exactly one month - 18 Cheshvan, and his birthday of 20 Kislev will be in two months. Think of it - in two months it will be exactly 120 years since the birth of the Moshe Rabbeinu of the last generation facing the Geula, and the question begs to be asked - what will we be doing about it?! I will not give my suggestions on the subject of this question at this time for two reasons - 1) Let others first brainstorm of possible other ideas & 2) It is Chol HaMoed when we try not to write too much other than what is necessary or Chiddushei Torah. B'Ezras Hashem, I'll be back blogging after Yom Tov with a few possible ideas that will publicize Saba on the occasion of his momentious birthday of 120 years.
Chag Sameach!
