As an aveil I am not supposed to receive gifts or presents.
Not that I really “need” anything…. I don’t.
So you can only imagine how surprised I was this morning when I opened an anniversary card (today is our 40th wedding anniversary) from my wife. My wife found the perfect “gift” befitting a mourner and deeply meaningful to me. She gave me the most extraordinary present – a day of Torah study dedicated to me in each of the schools attended by our grandchildren.
When you are saying kaddish life does not get any better than it is today – thanks to my beloved wife Marilyn.
