Today’s Story about Rabbi Simes – Thursday, November 9, 2017
Many years ago, while in a hospital rehabilitation centre for my lungs, we were blessed to see a very much loved Rabbi in the halls, there, with his wife and new son.
This Rabbi had survived a serious accident and faced a very difficult recovery; yet he inspired us by his determination and holiness.
Now, my little brother is in the same rehab centre, also recovering from a very serious accident. Imagine how I felt seeing the Rabbi’s photo and story on the wall of the rehab centre as I accompanied my brother to his first physiotherapy session, today.
There he was, smiling at us, not merely from that photo but from Where he is now. The prayers said for that dear Rabbi have come back to us to help my brother and give us hope.
May his memory be for a blessing.
