Rachel Gemara: Had an amazing experience last summer when an ezer mitzion ambulance took me and my patient from Shaarei tzedeck Jerusalem to bnei brak for her brothers wedding. It was completely last minute and the driver and organizers were incredible. My patient passed away 3 weeks later and this was the last simcha she was able to attend.

She could head for bed with a clear conscience. Ahhh, heaven…
And then the phone rang. Continue reading Lottie’s Kitchen Event Coming Up
Mention Passover anytime in March and every family member’s blood pressure goes up. Each year it seems to be an insurmountable task even though we managed the year before. But what if this year is different from all other years? What if this year the family is coping with serious illness? What if everyone is running back and forth to the hospital?

I’m a businessman. Thank G-d, I always have money in my pocket. I could easily buy myself lunch whenever I like. But this isn’t about a tuna fish sandwich. It’s not about lunch. It’s about caring.
