many of our Israeli friends thanked us
for having the wedding in Israel, in
Jerusalem. They feel very stressed, very
pressured and very alone. Having a
simchah there, being able to relax and
enjoy the fun, was worth a great deal
to them. We were able, in some small
way, to support them and strengthen
their resolve. They know. that Jews out-
side of Israel support them financially.
But they need emotional support, too,
and that cannot be given at a distance.
Jews in the Detroit area send mil-
lions of dollars each year to Israel.
Excellent! We send additional millions
of dollars in years of strife and special
difficulty there. Great!
We must also send ourselves. We
must go visit Israel. We must continue
to send our children to study in Israel.

in Safed this summer.) If you feel that
Israel is important, that Jews should
continue to live in Israel in freedom,
that American Jews need Israel, then
you must vote with your feet.
Sometimes, it is necessary in life to
simply show up. Now is one of those
times. Cancel your trip to Europe; put
off buying your new SUV for a year;
don't remodel your kitchen.
Go. Go by yourself; go with a group;
go on Birthright Israel. Go to study. Go
to tour. Go on the Aug. 11-14 Israel
Rally http://vvww.rallyinisrael.org
Go to have your own family simchah
— a wedding or your child's bar or bat
mitzvah. Go to lie on the beach and to
scuba dive in the Red Sea. Go to drink
coffee, eat a falafel or have a steak in a
town with dozens of kosher restaurants.
Go to become an oleh chadash, a new
immigrant. Go to shop. Buy books. Buy
silver. Buy an apartment. Just go! ❑

tamer" when all other explanations fail.
Lacking all other reasons, we fall
back to a punitive concept, that we
deserve punishment; that perhaps God
never liked us to begin with. But ill-
ness has shown me another God, one
of comfort. The "loathsome trickster
God" offers nothing, not even to say,
"I don't know."
There is no reason why this has hap-
pened. Life is inherently unpredictable.
Diseases, like lung cancer, have more
ups and downs than a soap opera. Like
Tolstoy's Anna Karenina you laugh or
cry, and sometimes both.
It's funny, at least to me, that since

losing my voice, I can't interrupt any-
one, not even to tell a joke. I have
learned to listen to news reports rather
than comment on the haircut of the
newscaster. Now that I listen to con-
versation, I'm no longer the smartest
person in any room, so far as you
could tell.
The condition won't last forever.
Soon, I'll have a silicon implant that has
nothing to do with breast enhancement.
I'm told it will smooth out my vocal
cord and restore my voice to normal.
I'm saving my best repartee until then.
"Man plans and God laughs," is
what we say in difficult times, as if
God were Henny Youngman.
If so, God can find me right here.
