"I spent a weekend at the Jerusalem Heritage House while extending my birthright adventure a few years ago (2013). It was one of the highlights of my time in Israel. I vividly remember walking down to the Western Wall on Shabbat and then breaking out to various Shabbat dinners; it was magnificent."

This Shabbos, Third Meal in the House is being sponsored by the Ron and Elliot Goldofsky in memory of their Father, an Israeli "lone soldier" and Holocaust survivor, Yitzchak "Irving" Goldofsky. We will be serving different kinds of herring (his favorite) in his memory.

His sons wrote the following:

A Personal Story of Chesed and Hachnasat Orchim

An early LONE SOLDIER story

By Ron and Elliot Goldofsky

.The story starts with a young man IRVING aka Yitzchak Goldofsky from Bendin, Poland who survived Auschwitz and was left orphaned and homeless. After the war he boarded a ship bound for Palestine to help build a new Jewish homeland. Before the ship was able to reach its destination it was boarded by the British and all the passengers, made up mostly of Holocaust survivors, were sent to an internment camp on Cyprus. Months later he was allowed entry but only to be taken to Atlit, yet another detention camp located on the northern coast.

Soon after his arrival a curious little girl from nearby Haifa came to the fence of the camp to catch a glimpse of the visitors from abroad. She was able to ask several of the “detainees” where they were from, including the young man from Bendin.

The next day she returned with her parents and her brother. She pointed to the young man from Bendin so that they could meet him. The girls’ parents explained that they had immigrated to Palestine before the war but that they were also originally from Bendin. Although they had never met before, the family from Haifa opened their hearts and their home and invited the young man to live with them in their small apartment up on the Carmel. Hence-an early example of The LONE SOLDIER PROGRAM in 1947-8 . It was the first time in many years that he could remember anyone had cared for him or his welfare.

Soon thereafter Yitzchak was inducted into the Haganah and fought for Israel's independence in Milchemet Shichrur (War of Independence).Yitzchak Goldofsky told stories of his standing at attention saluting the Israeli flag on May 14 (5 of Iyar) in 1948 . He knew-as did everyone else that war with the arab neighbors was to follow. He fought in the Carmeli brigade Gedud 21. Eventually was shot and injured . He survived the war and began schooling in Technion but then emigrated to the USA to join his brother Sam. Yitzchak Goldofsky bought a one way ticket back to Israel to fight in 1956 war (War of Attrition),however B"H, his girlfriend Frances married him and instead he stayed in NY to raise a family--of 2 sons--Elliot and Ron.

That young man was our father and this gift is dedicated to his memory--Yitzchak Ben Eliyahu Goldofsky and in memory of my adopted grandparents Yemima and Yehoshua Kamarad (A”H) who took in my Dad, gave him a home and personified the mitzvah of Hachnasat Orchim as a holocaust survivor and a LONE SOLDIER.
