Any Port In A Storm... Well Maybe Not 'Any'
The doctor gave me a list of blood tests I needed to take, but said: "We'll start the chemo next week and you'll get the tests all done in a week of two."  That was on a Thursday during the last two weeks of August when everyone world over (or so it felt), is on vacation.  If you are Israeli that meant you were in Greece or Italy as Turkey was (and continues to be) off the vacation list.  The Turks for their part are surprised that Israelis have responded to their president and compatriots' constant diatribe against Israel, Jews and Israelis, by canceling their vacations to places that sing, "Kill the Jews/Israelis" as a refrain for all songs!
The Appointment Dress
    It wasn't until I entered high school that I had a rude awakening.  Not everyone grew up like I did and not everyone could relate to what I thought was normal.  You see, I had been with the same group of people since age 3, and they just accepted what "came" with being me. 
Purim 2011-Cheering On Our Warriorettes And Warriors
I know I'm treading on thin ice here but I can't help but see certain parallels between what's happening all around us (the hair raising events in the Middle East) and the events of Purim so many years ago.  We have just passed through Adar Alef, and comparisons between the many who rose against us, the small Jewish community of old Persia, and our many Jew-hating and Israel-hating Arab neighbors seem obvious.
No Time To 'Do' Anything But Get Into Trouble: Wheels of Fortune
Yossi (an amalgam of many cases I have seen) has been having difficulties with the police.  Yossi lives on a yishuv.  A yishuv is a smaller suburban community that was formed on vacant land, either in-or outside the Green Line.  For the most part they were built in the halcyon days after the Six-Day War and an Anglo-Saxon aliya.  The houses/apartments are basically identical having been built by the same contractor.  They were generally settled by young couples with children.
Love With Respect
"In the nine years since the car hit me, leaving me at 14 years of age a quadriplegic on a respirator, the options available to me for work, narrowed dramatically.  You see the only part of my anatomy that I can manipulate is my face.
Elokai Neshama: The Miracle of G-d Given Breath
Chaim K. rolls into my office with a determined look on his face and a twinkle in his eye.  I am filled with relief that his dark days seem to be coming to an end.  Over the past six years we have been meeting in my office at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem for his therapy sessions and have achieved a level of comfort with each other.  Awe, mutual respect, friendship, frustration and excitement have often joined hands during the more-or-less weekly sessions.  We have learned to understand each other in a way that sometime resembles an old married couple (at 23 years of age Chaim K. is the age of my eldest grandchild!). 
A Life Lesson And My New Reality
 In the spring of 1998, Shaare Zedek's New York-based Women's Division, under the watchful direction of Lee Weinbach, chose me as the recipient of the Maimonides  Award. I knew it was not only for my work at Shaare Zedek but also as a first of many future recognitions of my late father's dreams and aspirations for this wonderful institution.

Pure Belief
Chaim K. has gone through a difficult time of late.  It is impossible to imagine oneself confined to a chair 24/7 for a week, let alone ten years!  Over the five years that we have known each other, I have been privy to Chaim K's indomitable spirit and the highs and lows of his mood.  The Jewish Press has given Chaim K. a platform from which to share his feelings and outlook on life.  A column titled "The Ever-Ready Battery" (The Jewish Press, April 8 2010) expresses Chaim K's ennui/exhaustion with his status quo.  "Just" living was so draining.
