too many questions here

too many questions here

To #7 and #10: What in heaven’s name is it your business to learn “what’s wrong with him” ??? I don’t know and it makes no difference. If the family wanted to share medical notes, they would have included them in their article. Unless you’re a specialist in the field of medicine they are dealing with, and they’ve approached you themselves , what can your knowledge of his situation possibly add, except to satisfy your curiosity?

Forget the detals, just go DAVEN. Would you daven differently if you knew what was the matter?

Though you are right.

You should assume the question comes out of care.

yes

yes

#12 asks, “Would you daven differently if you knew what was the matter?” The answer is yes, for many of us. Yes, we daven differently if we know that the Chabad house in Mumbai is under siege, that a child was in a fire, that someone was in a car accident.

The more specific, yes, the more heartfelt. Though that doesn’t mean people must share information.

And always, always, it is proper to give updates. If you ask me to daven, give me updates about the person’s condition!

Ahavas Yesroel would help more.

Details please
Guest
Details please

What happened? Is he okay? I really think when we know what is wrong we can direct our prayers to the area in a more concentrated way. So if someone could let us know, it would help. Thank you so much and yes, could you please let us know what kapital it would be? (surely that is not private too…..)

Thanks to the Tefilois, and Ma’asim Toivim of so many -there has been an improvement in Mendel’s שי condition.
We ask that everyone continue in his zchus – in the zchus of לוי יצחק בן צירל and in the zchus of all of our brothers and sisters who need a רפואה and ישועה.

G*d IS in the details & that IS Ahavas Yisrael, it means we care!!

MAin thing is we want to be there for your family as well as Menachem Mendel haCohen. The update gives us more impetus to keep it in mind. And we also appreciate family’s brachas for our situations. ACHTUS B’AHAVAS YISRAEL!!

With 18. And some of us MAY have connections and further networks that can assist, depending on the condition ailing him. Plus, some of us may want to make sure we didn’t miss a previous communication.
