Warsaw, Brisk and Vilna - Part Four

In the morning in Brest, after breakfast,

we went to the Fortress, a probable site near where Zev Dov Begin, Menachem Begin's father was thrown into the river to drown, rocks around his neck.

Then, off on the long, hours-long drive to Grodno passing flat fields, straight roads and forests, again and again.

We ate a boxed-lunch in the parking lot by the river

outside Grodno's Choral Synagogue, run by the local Chabad

These are near the entrance:

The accoustics were amazing, perhaps better than in Warsaw:

davened Mincha 

They had a fire three years ago Chanuka, and their reconstruction/renovation work has suffered a set-back

They have a small museum and amongst Grodonians I found Eitan Livni of the Irgun

and Natan Yellin-Mor (Friedman) of the Lechi

Rabbi Shimon Shkop's Yeshiva Shaar HaTorah:

and the gate to the ghetto during the Holocaust years:

And then back on the bus to ride to Vilna.

Hi everyone,fix your broken relationship and marriage right now no matter how hopeless your situation seems!! I am so excited sharing my testimony with everyone here about how i saved my marriage and got my husband back after a divorce!!!
I am Natasha Hayes by name and i reside here in United States of America.I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past{7}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our marriage was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster Dr Unity. So, i will advice you out there, if you have any problem contact Dr Unity and i guarantee you that he will help you and you will be the next to share your testimony to every one in the world!!.
