On Shavuos, we became the People of the Covenant through accepting the Torah and its path of mitzvos (commandments), and converts become members of the People of the Covenant through accepting the Torah and its path of mitzvos (commandments). In the spirit of Shavuos, I have attached a moving story about a convert from Japan -- a courageous man who risked his life in order to help the People of the Covenant during World War Two. The story opens with a description of a joyous event which took place in Jerusalem several decades ago.
The above story was published in the American edition of "Yated Ne'eman" - a weekly Torah newspaper, and it is reprinted with the permission of the Editor, Rabbi Pinchos Lipschutz. For further information about this newspaper, please contact: Editor @ yated.com
