A very special message from Rabbanith Ruth Menashe, who is currently still in the ICU (intensive care) at Shaare Zedek Medical Center hospital in Jerusalem.
I remember, the old building of Shaare Zedek Hospital in Yerushalayim. I doubt the original building still exists, in Rehov Yaffo. I was born and raised in Jerusalem and some 4 decades later, I have had the Zekhuth, (merit) of visiting the hospital again. This time though, as a patient.
During some of the endless nights here, I would question and think over different matters. I was wondering why a hospital would be named: "Gates of Justice". To the best of my knowledge, hospital names are often associated with their location.
Perhaps, there is a profound hidden message for us. Even a place like a hospital, where pain and suffering often prevail, may well be a source of joy and happiness. G-d's justice is perfect. Justice emanates from here. G-d's perfect and pure justice.
Those dark moments are challenging but embrace us with love and protection. They permit us to experience the journey through the "Gates of Justice " like so many of us did.
I thank you all for your continued support, kindness and outpouring of love and affection which we are so grateful for.
