As Long As I Live

This is truly a book that I cannot put down. I’m so excited to write about it, that I’m breaking the standard rule of book reviews: finish the book first. Actually you don’t need to bite into an apple to know if it is good, is how I feel about this book which details the life of Aharon Margalit, who suffered challenges and disabilities throughout his life, and never gave up. This is a man who held his head up high, recovered from every challenge, rose above it, and became a great man by anyone’s standards. He overcame a speech defect, survived living in a sanatorium with humor and wit, and learned to walk without crutches in spite of having polio as a child.

There are more amazing things this man accomplished, but I won’t write them here, mostly because I have not reached those parts yet in the book! (and also because I wouldn’t want to give away the ending!).

In any case, everyone should purchase this book written from the point of view of the protagonist, a man who has courage and strength that has inspired thousands of people around the world. The book was translated from Hebrew to English, and the original title was “Ethalech,” which means “I will go on…as long as I live” – a verse from Tehillim (psalms).

Have a wonderful weekend, full of inspiration and acts of courage.


In the Blink of an Eye

Hashem (G-d) has the eternal ability to help people who are suffering, in the blink of an eye. From one second to the next. That is the thought I had this morning when a dear friend from abroad wrote me an email describing briefly the crisis her family is going through. My heart went out to her, and since she has asked me to share her family member’s full name, I will do that,  so  people can have this woman in mind when davening (praying) to Hashem, especially through saying tehillim (psalms).

Please have in mind in your prayers  for a speedy recovery and help with troubles:

Tehila Sara bas Chaya Batyah

That is my request to all of you today.

May we always share simchos and good news.

May this woman’s recovery happen in the blink of an eye. Immediately – very soon.
