DIRECT FROM BROADWAY

n the tradition of Rocky
I, II, III and IV, Rabbi M.

Robert Syme of Temple
Israel is circulating on audio
cassette entitled, "Hip Re-
placement II," a humorous
recounting- of his second hip
surgery last December, and
subsequent recovery.
"Originally, I intended it
only for my friends about to
go through the same thing
and who were quite ap-
prehensive about it," he ex-
plained. He said he has sent
the tape —. actually a record-
ing of a sermon he delivered
in January — to about 30
friends.
Unlike plastic surgery, per-
formed to improve a person's
appearance, the types of
- surgery faced by most men
over 60 are nothing one can
boast about, Rabbi Syme tells
his listeners.
Nor is there anything to
show off. "After my first hip
replacement six years ago,
there was no way to display
it," he adds with some frus-
tration. "People didn't say,
Wow! Look at that gorgeous
hip!' " .
Later in the tape, he de-
scribes the "excruciating tor-
ture of physical therapy" he
faced in the hands of an
enthusiastic and competent,
but very young physical
therapist who, having -mis-
read the rabbi's name, pro-
dded him constantly with,
"Come on, Mr. Symie. You
can do better than that!"
Recuperating in the hospi-
tal, unable to sleep at night,
Rabbi Syme says he was
quickly overwhelmed by feel-
ings of self-pity. Comforting
messages from the staff at
Temple Israel, telling him

Rabbi Syme:
Shooting from the hip

everything was fine, only
made things worse and forced
him to realize that he was
not indispensable. "Each one
was like a stab at my heart,"
he says half-joking. "How I
survived those reassuring
messages I'll never know."
Jarred by the poignant
scenes he witnessed in the
hospital, "my self-pity van-
ished." Now, after several
months back at work he can
say, "Between God and the
doctor who had a good night's
sleep, I feel secure."
Trying to put the best
possible light on the hos-
pitalizations he has faced,
Rabbi Syme said laughing,
"Each time, I become some-
what impoverished physi-
cally, but greatly enriched
spiritually."
