B”H we all fasted well, but more importantly we pray that all our Tefillos are heard and answered and that we merit to be inscribed in the Book of LIfe, a long healthy, happy life.
Erev Yom Kippur I received a call from a friend explaining to me that her cousins child was undergoing surgery Erev Yom Kippur. This friend prepared Challah dough and asked me if I thought this mother would appreciate or be offended if she brought the dough to the hospital enabling her cousin to make a Bracha on separating the Challah as a segulah for her daughter’s Refuha Shlema. I told her not to hesitate even a second and that it is a remarkable act of Chessed she could do for someone in time of need.
I thought about this act of kindness throughout Yom Kippur. This woman gave this other woman hope and strength through this amazing Mitzvah of Challah. It was by no means an easy day to go visit someone in the hospital Erev Yom Kippur and yet she put her personal life on hold, to take care of someone else’s needs.
Motzei Yom Kippur I received an email from a friend saying that she has designated a Tzedekah box in her house in honor of Benny. She performs that act of charity with her children every morning for the Zechus that Benny’s tests go well and ultimately is healed completely.
Then today in the hospital, as we embark down the long corridor to the CT center, I receive an email from a friend saying that her husband and son are about to get a Bracha from Rav Shteinman and Rav Chaim Kanievsky. By the time we got to the CT center the Brochos (blessings) were given. What Hashgacha Pratis!
B”H Benny cooperated with smiles and high fives at the completion of his scans.
Benny also had the privilege to meet his 4 day old cousin who just arrived from Israel this morning. Mazal Tov to Miriam Tova and Moshe Eli Leiber on their newest addition. We thank you for sharing your Simcha with the family and look forward to meeting Eliyahu Hanavi IY”H by the Bris. IY”H may we and Benny be Zoche to his Brochos of Refuah, and all good things.
IY”H may we hear good news very soon.
A Guten Erev Shabbos,
