Rabbi Golombeck was in Santander Bank waiting in line, and there was a Heimeshe Yid behind him. Rabbi Golombeck told him, “I know time is precious to every Yid, but you should just know that I’m going to be very quick.

Undamped Simcha

Rabbi Golombeck had a flood in his basement, which caused a lot of damage, so he filed an insurance claim. He hired a public adjuster to make sure the insurance company would give him the full amount of money he needed to make the repairs.

He said that because he follows a Life with Bitachon, instead of being mad at his wife, he asked himself why he wants to do it so badly.
