Sabbath music videoThis is Yaakov Shwekey singing Refuah, a prayer for good health.
Some of you may recall that two weeks ago, I went to the funeral of my friend's daughter on the Mount of Olives. At the time, I mentioned that the girl's father, my dear friend, was also not well. On Sunday night he returned to the US... for a round of chemotherapy on Monday morning. Yes, he and his daughter were receiving treatment in the same hospital at the same time. But now, his daughter has gone to a better place. And he is still fighting to live.
I'd like to take this opportunity to ask you all to pray for Yisrael Refael ben Sara Nesha. I suspect that many of you in the New York area, or who attended yeshivoth and seminaries here 5-10 years ago, know him. If you think you do, please do not post details in the comments (where they will be deleted), but you can drop me a private email and I will answer.
Let's go to the videotape.
Shabbat Shalom everyone.
