    B"H I first attended some of Rabbi Machlis' shabbat meals in the summer of 2003. From the first it was clear that his whole family is very special and loving. So many people have received so much from knowing the Machlis family, myself included. A love and profound knowledge of Judaism, chesed, warmth and respect for all are in the very fabric of the Machlis home.

    I feel speechless every time i try to put into words to g-d and to you my deep appreciation for your profound godly influence upon my life.
    there are no words to describe what your shabbat meals... or should i say "shabbat spiritual experiences" over the past year have meant to me in my personal journey for the truth. THANK YOU!
    last night on my way to work, i walked a way i never walk to catch my bus... and now i know why! i met a regular attender at your shabbat table who told me about your web site: www.machlis.org, now i know i met this person divinely appointed of hashem...
    because after work i spent 3 hours (6:30-9:30am) reading EVERYTHING on the web site and shedding many tears & praying. the whole time i read it, i felt holy presences... angels around me. your "chesed" is VERY, VERY H-O-L-Y work; angels , as well as humans are witnesses of this.
    henny you are "aishes chayil"! rabbi, you are " well known in the councils"... you are an "elder of the land" of israel!
    you both are receiving the fruits of your hands... and you are being praised in the gates of jerusalem by your very own deeds.(proverbs 31).
    i love you both most dearly.

    most amazing thing on earth
    what a beautiful Mitzvah you do I dont know anyone in the world who does what you are doing and with so much love and passion, you are like angels. I pray to G-D that he should give you the strength and the resources for this great kindness you and your family perform with so many people.

    unforgettable
    I went for a shabbos at the Machlis' house two summers ago, and i will never forget such warmth and hospitality.. They themselves are shining examples of what Jews should aspire to.

    The Machlises are the greatest Chessed warehouse I know. Ive had the true honor and privilege of getting to know Harav Mordechai and Rebbitzen Henny over the course of a few years and what they do is absolutely out of this world. I couldnt imagine donating to a worthier cause.

    May God bless them with the ability to do so so much more. May they have the ability to invite many hundreds of people each Shabbat to the amazing sanctification of Gods name that they call home.

    aharon ,
    This is beyond words!
    I was very moved by the article, knowing the Machlis's personally. The experience is very heartwarming. How Rabbi and Reb. Machlis give of themselves and devote themselves to making others feel good, whether it's Shabbos, or one has to just pour out his heart, or just for some company, the Machlis's are always there to help with a smile, love, and concern. He is like the Avraham Avinu of our generation with his hospitality and like the Berditchever Rebbe who was the defender of every single person, looking at every situation in a positive light.
    Surely, one who helps support them financially has a great merit and has a share in this great chessed/kindness.
    May Hashem give them the strength to keep on bringing light to the world and to all those individuals who enter their wonderful home.

    Shalom :-),

    I first enjoyed a Shabbat Dinner at the Machlis Home February 21, 2004 just before I was set to start a 10 week Volunteering Program here in Israel. I was impressed with the positive atmosphere and spiritually enriching words of Torah I heard & how 1 family was able to bring such an enjoyable Shabbat experience to so many people. I remember thinking, wow, this is a lot of guests and yet, their was still plenty of amazing food to go around & everyone enjoyed Shabbat.

    Since then, I have enjoyed attending classes on Tuesday nights at 8:45 p.m. at the Machlis home, many Shabbat dinners, lunches & a truly wonderful Minyan Shabbat Mornings at the Western Wall led by Rabbi Machlis.

    I finally made Aliyah this past summer, July 2006 & now I look forward to many more great experiences with the Machlis family. I can't say thank you enough for the continually positive outlook on life & bright smiles that welcome & see off guests to the Machls Home. :-)

    When I told rav machlis I was leaving Israel, he nearly broke down into tears, just because of the fact that a jew was leaving israel.

    Having met the machlis', although never having been over for a Shabbos meal (I'm friends with their second son in law's family) I would like to share what I saw happen in their home. I went over on Motzei Shabbos, with two friends (the son in law's siblings) and while we were there having melave malke, some really interesting guy came, he ate, he slept a little and then we gave him a lift to the van he wanted to sleep in, but which had stalled somewhere near town, so that he would have a place to spend the night. It was really quite amazing.

    The most amazing thing is that this family is so real and so normal, when you talk to them, they sound just like everyone else, they don't sound overly 'holy' or preachy, they're just regular people, doing a very unusual and very amazing thing!
