Father’s Day

Dad

Gradually, the crowd of doctors stepped back to give Joseph room to breathe. Danny helped his father back to his wheelchair.

“Where’s Grandma?” he asked.

“Zev went after her,” Danny told him.

“What about you? Are you OK?” Rivka asked.

“I’m fine,” he said. “Where’s my father?”

“Don’t worry,” Rivka assured him. “Shimon’s with him.”

People returned to their tables. The Rabbi took charge once again and told everyone to hold up the matzot.

“I’ve got to go help them,” Joseph said.

“What about the Seder?” Rivka asked.

“I’ll be right back. In the meantime, the kids can follow along with the Rabbi.”

Joseph navigated the wheelchair away from the table. But he was an inexperienced driver and ended up crashing into a lady sitting across the way.

“Next year in Jerusalem,” Danny said, quoting the last sentence of the Haggadah, as he hurried to grab the handles of the renegade wheelchair. With a tug and a push, he shoved his father in the direction of the lobby. Not wanting to miss out on the action, Avi and Moishe jumped out of their seats to race off after them. Even before the Rabbi reached the parable of the Four Sons, Rivka was all alone at their table with the baby. “Some happy holiday,” she thought.
