What My Dad Taught me in the ICU Today

B”H, my father’s surgery on Thursday was successful, and now he needs to spend a few more days recuperating in the hospital before he’s released home. On Friday, when my brother and I visited my dad in the ICU he was in the middle of getting an ultrasound and making small talk with the young ultrasound technician. I noticed that she was referring to him as “Mr. Freedman” rather than “Dr. Freedman” so I asked her, “Did you know that my father was the Chief of Radiology in this hospital?” Her...

What Do You Name a Baby Born on Yom HaShoah?

I bring meals to neighborhood moms after birth. And yesterday I delivered some soup and couscous to my dear neighbor, Nechama Lerner. Afterwards, I wept the whole way back home. Because of the story Nechama told me about why she and her husband, Tal, chose the special name of their newborn son. “Tal and I are both the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors. All of our grandparents survived the war in different ways. Tal had grandparents who spent the Shoah in a Romanian ghetto. My grandparents were hidden by non-Jews in Holland. And our...

Widow of Counterterrorism Hero Noam Raz HY”D “Thank you for choosing me to be your wife.”

This past Friday, 47-year-old Noam Raz of Israel’s elite counterterrorism unit, was tragically killed while hunting down a terrorist in Jenin. Noam Raz devoted his life to guarding the Jewish people in the Land of Israel and to his beloved wife, Efrat, and their 6 children. The State of Israel rests atop the strong and unwavering shoulders of people like Noam Raz. His death is a great loss for Israel but a far greater loss for his mourning family. I was moved so deeply by his wife Efrat’s eulogy that I sat down this afternoon in...
