Hashem Supports All Those Who Fall


Lessons-logo

May 3, 2009-9 Iyar 5769: This is a date I will always remember and give thanks to Hashem. I was crossing 14th Avenue at 1 p.m. on a rainy day when I was suddenly struck by a car. The Almighty zokef kefufim straightens the bowed.

Not realizing yet what had occurred, I managed to stand up and asked the bystanders what had happened. I saw my shopping cart with groceries sprawled across the street. A lady approached me apologetically, saying that she hit me with her car and asked if I was okay. When I said I want to go home she helped me into her car.

Within minutes a Hatzolah ambulance arrived, escorted me inside, and took me to the emergency room. Two of my daughters arrived and helped me walk. When I requested to go home, I was discharged and my husband came to drive me home.

` For months I was treated by doctors for cellulites, a fractured bone, and side effects from antibiotics. Throughout those long weeks, I constantly davened to Hashem and I knew that He was by my side all along. The hardest part was being restricted physically and feeling shut in, when I had always been active, Baruch Hashem.

On my mother’s yahrzeit, 19 Kislev, I was able to participate in her yahrzeit seudah in my daughter’s home and publicly thanked Hashem for his miracle by reciting birchas hagomel. I truly felt reborn by being allowed to walk around freely.

Now, Baruch Hashem, with my health restored, while passing the street corner where I was hit, I say, “Baruch she’asah li nes bamakom hazeh” (praised is Hashem Who performed a miracle for me in this place). My son says, “Baruch she’asah nes le’mi” (to my mother) when passing there. One son-in-law told me, “Hashem loves you.”

I still fear crossing the streets, but I try to remember that Hashem is with me. I want to publicly express my hakoras hatov (appreciation) to Him, the ultimate healer.

Outside of the High Holidays, Pesach is probably the most celebrated biblical holiday for the majority of Jews.

“If I notify people, nobody will buy the matzos!” exclaimed Mr. Mandel. “Once the halachic advisory panel ruled leniently, why can’t I sell the matzos regularly?”

So what type of praise is it that Aaron followed orders?

On the exalted Purim day, my husband collects money for needy families, as is the custom of many good-hearted Jews.

Last Purim before sundown, he entered the home of his last stop, a home filled with many people. Upon receiving some generous donations, he reached for his pocket to keep these contributions safely together with the rest of the money he had gathered. To his great chagrin and shock, he put his hand into an empty pocket.

I was about 11 years old and crying on the front steps of the Bluzhever Rebbe’s house. It was the late 40s, and the Rebbe had recently arrived. He miraculously survived the Nazi inferno, but lost his wife and children.
