Is Cancer a Blessing?

10-18-17  Is Cancer a Blessing?

We learn Lionel has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Bernie shares his wisdom on all the years he’s worked with those with cancer. We ask is cancer is a blessing? A wake-up call or a new beginning…Lionel shares his new diet and Bernie shares:

The following is by Tzvi Freeman from Chabad.Org web site. It touched my heart and the lesson is our teacher. I have learned much from the stories of concentration camp experiences about surviving.

This I can answer best with a story.

In the gas chamber of Auschwitz stood a group of young boys, stripped of their clothes, awaiting their final demise. One boy sprang up and shouted: “Brothers! Today is the holiday of Simchat Torah. Before we die, let us celebrate Simchat Torah one last time.”

“We do not possess anything,” the boy continued. “We do not have clothes to cover us, nor a Torah scroll with which to dance. So let us dance with G‑d Himself before we return our souls to Him.”

They danced with G‑d in the gas chamber. We dance with Him in the synagogues and in the streets.

For that is a Jew. One who embraces the Author within the book, the Teacher within the teaching, G‑d within a scroll.

And it is with Him that we dance.
