Happy Birthday To The Gadol Hador


R. Chaim Berlin Zt"l used to send every year a fancy birthday cake to the Gadol Hador R.Shmuel Salant Zt"l

The Jerusalem newspaper “Chavatzelet” reported on February 1909 that on  the 2nd of Shevat  R.Shmuel Salant [zt”l] celebrated his 93d birthday.

Gedolei Yerushalyim and dignitaries  assembled in his house. One of the Gedolim said Chidushei Torah.

R. Chaim Berlin  (shlita) [zt”l] sent, as he usually did, a decorated fancy birthday cake with flowers & ornaments. 
It was inscribed with cream the following words,

בשם ה' כי ארך ימים ושנות חיים טובים ארוכים ושלום רב יוסיפו להרב הגאון מורנו רבנו ר' שמואל בן רבי צבי,אמן אמן  זה משלי ידידו רצוף
אהבה רבה,
חיים ברלין

    Islamic law is the law of the land
    in Saudi Arabia, and religious officials
    have tremendous sway over daily life.

    Textbooks in Saudi schools denigrate
    nonbelievers and the West and extol martyrdom.

    For example, Time magazine reported
    that “an 8th grade book states that Allah
    cursed Jews and Christians and turned
    some of them into apes and pigs.

    Ninth-graders learn that Judgment Day
    will not come “until the Muslims
    fight the Jews and kill them.”

    A chapter for a 10th-grade class warns
    Muslims against befriending non-Muslims
    saying, “It is compulsory for Muslims
    to be loyal to each other and consider
    the infidels their enemy.”

    Saudi Arabia features anti-Semitic hate
    speech year after year in the educational
    material it gives to its children.”

    “Because their legitimacy is linked to
    their image as champions of Islam,
    Saudi leaders step gingerly in the
    world of Islamist politics and have been
    hesitant to oppose jihadist causes.”

    “Slavery was a flourishing institution in Arabia
    in the 1920s, and for several decades thereafter.

    It was not formally abolished in the Kingdom until 1962.

    The pilgrimage was the main source. Nigerians
    and Sudanese would sell their children in Mecca
    to help pay for their journey home, and the
    slave trade was one traditional source
    of the shareefs’ wealth.”

    “In Nejd every emir and sheikh had at least one
    black family living in his household, and their
    children were assigned as playmates to the children
    in the household of their age and sex, growing
    up with them and often becoming their
    close companions in adult life.”

    “When Prince Faisal ibn Abdul Aziz visited
    New York [City] in [year] 1944 [CE], the
    management of the Waldorf Astoria [hotel] were
    shocked that he brought his slave Merzouk with him.”
