Angel In Mexico


Lessons-logo

Normally, I enjoy air travel. But the night before a recent flight to Los Cabos, Mexico, I developed an excruciating earache. I tried nursing it with organic eardrops, but by the time we arrived at the airport, the pain had only intensified.

My husband was surprised that I had agreed to travel in this condition. As it turned out, the flight was uneventful, and I managed to arrive at our destination in fair spirits. We were scheduled to visit the local Chabad Center for the Minchah/Ma’ariv services shortly after our arrival. I planned to ask the rebbetzin for the name of a local doctor.

While checking in at the front desk at our resort hotel, a man called out to us, “Are you having problems? If so, call Rabbi Benny.”

Startled, we told him that we already knew Rabbi Benny, and that we were planning to get directions to his Chabad center for evening services. The man responded, “No problem. I will take you there.”

We gratefully agreed to meet him after unpacking our bags for the ride to the Chabad center. On the way there, I asked him if he knew of a local doctor, as by then my earache had significantly worsened. I could hardly swallow on the left side of my throat.

Amazingly, he responded, “I am a doctor.”

I asked incredulously, “Are you really a doctor?”

He said, “Yes. When I met you in the lobby, I was there to see a patient.”

By the time we got over this miracle, we arrived at our destination. The doctor introduced himself as Dr. Mark Head.

After davening with a group of tourists from around the world, we were all invited to dinner. As we proceeded to sit down, Dr. Head appeared and handed me a bag full of medications.

Here I was sitting at a Chabad center in Los Cabos, Mexico, being treated royally by a mystery physician. Hashem does wonders! We felt that Dr. Head was an angel from heaven.

We found a great friend in Mark, as he also took it upon himself to be our tour guide.

We thank Hashem for this amazing event.

Never forget to look around in a time of need. You never know which angels Hashem has sent to help you in your predicament.

There is a great debate as to whether this story actually took place or is simply a metaphor, a prophetic vision shown to Hoshea by Hashem.

How often does your family ask you: “What’s for dinner?” Here are some great ideas for traditional family favorites simply with a healthy makeover. Instead of being a short-order cook, follow these guidelines to help you prepare nutritious, delicious dinners everyone will enjoy.

It was a brisk fall day in late October some years ago when Chavy (name changed) decided that since the weather was perfect she would walk to work. She had, Baruch Hashem, just resumed her work schedule after being home for six weeks due to her maternity leave for the birth of her latest child. She felt the exercise was good for her, as it was only about a half mile to her job. She put all of her work papers into her knapsack and gingerly swung it over onto her back for the trek to work.

It was an ordinary day and Dovid (name changed) was preparing to catch the late afternoon EL AL flight to Eretz Yisrael. He had yahrzeit for his father and planned his trip so he’d arrive there just in time to join his brother at the kever. He parked his car in the area that facilitated a faster trip to JFK for his flight. Little did he know that he was being observed by a team of thieves who were “working” the Diamond District that day in order to rob the merchants of their goods.

Who said weekday dinners had to be boring? It’s simple to keep the fresh and fun with just a little preparation. Stock your kitchen with staples like whole-wheat pasta, organic fish, poultry, meats, and organic fruits and vegetables (go frozen if you can’t buy fresh).
