Had Question

I am #2, who had a question. On further reflection, I withdraw the question, as #3 so beautifully points out.

Great Story

I just read this tonight after spending the whole holiday at Chabad of Mizzou, here in Columia, Misssouri. It was a wonderful story to read after a fast, and to inspire me again next year.

HaKadosh Baruch Hu gave you two Yom Kippurs back then, when you were young and strong, because this year you can’t fast.
No other words would ever have calmed the old Yid’s heart.
May we all have that deep burning desire to fulfill Hashem’s will

Question

This is indeed an incredibly inspiring story. But I think Rabbi Friedman should have asked why the doctor said he can’t fast. It wasn’t necessarily Pikuach Nefesh.

Amazing story
