A Special Message from Rabbanith Ruth Menashe for Yom Kippur

Rabbanith Ruth Menashe
Thursday, September 12, 2013/Tashri 8, 5774

We know that everything that happens to us is good, even that which we perceive as being "bad", is also good. We should work on ourselves to develop the ability to thank G-d for the good, as well as for the "bad". Sometimes we may wonder, what good there is in suffering. Each one knows what challenges he or she is facing.

As for me, I know that there are multiple reasons for my illness, and I would like to share one of them with you. Being exposed to how you and others reacted when they found out about my condition, was an amazing learning experience for me. Different people in their own unique style, expressed so much warmth, love, care and concern for my family and myself, that we were left amazed and speechless.

Many of the things that people have done for me I admit, with regret, that I have never done for others.

I received countless phone calls and emails from people, expressing their concern and reassuring me that I am in their prayers, daily. Friends offered rides to the hospital and delivered cooked meals to my home. They organized Hafrashath Hallah events and Torah classes, all dedicated to my recovery. And this is just a partial list.

The lesson is priceless and I would like to thank you all for teaching me how to take care of our fellow man in their time of need.

As we stand in awe and reverence on the holy day of Yom Kippur, I pray that our merciful Father in Heaven accepts our Tefilloth (prayers), embraces us -- His beloved children -- and seals us in the Book of Life, Amen.
