Over the last few weeks, a number of you have written to inquire about my father’s health. The letters came from around the world from folks who I otherwise would have never “met” if not for the glorious invention called the Internet.
To those who wrote, I’ve tried to be positive. After all, given where my father was just a few short months ago — his life literally hanging in the balance, attached to a respirator — the fact that he is alive despite what the doctors were “preparing me” for, is nothing short of miraculous.
As I said then, I believe in the power of prayer to alter “destiny”. The same is true of doing acts of kindness in another’s merit.
It worked previously, and I am LITERALLY praying it works again.
When my father was hospitalized this spring, doctors discovered a “situation” that for some unknown reason — and despite his regular checkups — was never previously found. In the last few days, the family was informed that emergency surgery is needed. It’s scheduled for early next week.
PLEASE pray in any language that you want and do acts of kindness for Yehuda ben (Hebrew: “son of”) Rivka. An act of kindness can be making somebody smile, holding a door open, not getting angry, offering somebody a ride. The idea is to make the world a better place in my father’s merit.
To the many, many “prayer warriors” out there, PLEASE alert as many folks as possible to my father’s situation. Time is of the essence!
There will be an update at http://www.JewishWorldReview.com/
Previously, a number of readers actually wrote to condemn me for making personal requests of my own readers on my own site. I’m hoping that you, my dear readers, will care enough to PLEASE heed my request.
This site is run by our Mavens and should continue to function in my absence.
Though we are not supposed to rely on miracles, they DO happen. And it’s my sincere wish that in my father’s case that they will happen again!
I’m counting on the collective merit of tens of thousands of good people that the Giver and Sustainer of All Life alter my father’s “destiny”.
In gratitude and friendship,
Binyamin L. Jolkovsky
