"This coming Shabbos, we celebrate the new month of Iyar. Iyar is the acronym for the words, "I am the L-rd your Healer." (Exodus, 15:26)
Therefore, this is a very auspicious month for healing, when we can appeal to G-d to cure us of all our ills. Our people are experiencing great suffering. There is so much pain, so much tragedy, on a personal as well as a national level. Let us gather our strength, unite as one and turn to our Heavenly Father in prayer and supplication. May He have mercy on all of us and bring peace to our beleaguered brethren in Israel and to all of us who are in need of healing.
I humbly ask those who read this to please mention me in your tefillos: Yehudah Tzvi HaKohain ben Elisheva as I am going through a very trying medical time. I thank you in advance and may Hashem rain brachos on you.
May Hashem Yisborach heal all the individuals, the Klal, the Am and the ganze Olam for refuah, gezunt, hatzlacha and geula bimhera biyameinu. Amein.
יַסֹּר יִסְּרַנִּי יָּהּ וְלַמָּוֶת לֹא נְתָנָנִי
And He said, If you hearken to the voice of the Lord, your God, and you do what is proper in His eyes, and you listen closely to His commandments and observe all His statutes, all the sicknesses that I have visited upon Egypt I will not visit upon you, for I, the Lord, heal you.
וַיֹּאמֶר אִם-שָׁמוֹעַ תִּשְׁמַע לְקוֹל יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ וְהַיָּשָׁר בְּעֵינָיו תַּעֲשֶׂה וְהַאֲזַנְתָּ לְמִצְוֹתָיו וְשָׁמַרְתָּ כָּל-חֻקָּיו--כָּל-הַמַּחֲלָה אֲשֶׁר-שַׂמְתִּי בְמִצְרַיִם לֹא-אָשִׂים עָלֶיךָ כִּי אֲנִי יְהוָה רֹפְאֶךָ
