Rav Shimshon Pincus Zt"l: His Life Unmasked The World, His Death Clouded It

"Sheker" roared Rav Shimshon Pincus as a response to his own statement that the "the way of the world is that shleppers drive a beat up Chevy while the smooth operator ends up driving the Cadillac." We need to be able see through the smoke screen of this world and see Hashem's hand behind it. There is no such thing as nature or the "way of the world." There is nothing in the world that doesn't happen without Hashem's divine plan. Hashem Echad!

He took the world as we know it, toyed with it, unmasked it, and showed us what really lay behind it. He was able to change our perception of things leaving us without a doubt as to what the truth was. He knew what life was all about and was able to paint a true picture where every detail fit neatly inside. He turned religion for us from a belief system where we tried our best to live our lives based on the "truths" that we were taught and drilled them into our heart leaving us without a shadow of a doubt. He made it all seem so obvious and simple that you would wonder why you were so confused until then. "Hashem Echad", this was the essence of Rav Shimshon Pincus zt"l.

A true loving relationship hinges more on not doing the things that upset each other more so than doing a bunch of loving, caring, and wonderful things yet causing hurt and pain without thinking twice. "Hashem Elokeinu" means that he is you personal Hashem who is close to you and loves you. To Rav Shimshon, Hashem was not a far off king who you needed "protexia" to petition. Hashem was here and now. Hashem is standing next to you as if you are the only thing in the world. He is waiting for you to call. He is yearning for your attention. And like the loving father He is there is no doubt that he will respond. When you heard Rav Shimshon speak you saw it in his eyes and heard it in his voice. That is how he lived his life. 100% dveykus, emunah, and bitachon all day every day. From our end of the relationship he demanded you to stay far away from any practices that Hashem hates no matter how much chesed and torah you did today. If you love Hashem you don't annoy him. "Hashem Elokeinu", this was the essence of Rav Shimshon Pincus zt"l.

Rav Pincus gave his life and soul to travel the globe to spread the message. His speeches captivated audiences across all the continents and changed the lives of many "frum" bnei torah and more distant Jews as well. "Shema Yisroel", this was the essence of Rav Shimshon Pincus zt"l.

His life was all about "Shema Yisroel Hashem Elokeinu hashem Echad"

He returned his pure neshama back to "his" Hashem on his drive back home from one of his fiery drashos the night before bedikas chametz together with his wife and daughter. While people cringed at the wreckage from the horrific car accident, in his typical way he probably sat in Shamayim screaming "Sheker!" There is no doubt he died a Misas Nishika, as Hashem gently took the souls of his faithful folllower and placed it safely before the Kisei HaKavod while the lifeless bodies played out the details of the false picture painted by a world of inaccurate images. Unfortunately our master Rav Shimshon was not there to explain this to us, a generation of bereft orphans who so desperately need his guidance.
