From Poland to Israel, read the story behind the suitcase.

Seventy-one years ago, Holocaust survivor Rabbi Aaron Brander (originally from Rimanov Poland) came from the Ulm Sedan Kaserne Displaced Persons Camp to the USA with all of his belongings packed into one seven pound, US-army issue suitcase, made of light green metal. Yesterday, his son Rabbi Dr. Kenneth Brander, brought the suitcase with him as he, his wife Ruchie and their youngest son, Yitzchak, made Aliya to Israel with Nefesh B’Nefesh, where Rabbi Brander will be taking the reins from Rabbi Shlomo Riskin as the President and Rosh Yeshiva of the Ohr Torah Stone – אור תורה סטון Network. “We are taking a lot more than one small suitcase,” Brander notes.
