"How does he do it?", is a question I have often asked myself. Never complaining or questioning, R' Dovid accepts his Nisayon with inner strength.
In the words of the beautiful song "A Yid" I found the answer.
"And a Yid understands that Hashem has a plan and that's all it takes to make it through".
At this time of the year, when we ask Hashem for forgiveness, R' Dovid reminds us that G-d's love is unconditional and we can turn to him as a father (Tatte), not only as a king.
"His Tatte loves him, that's what R' Dovid holds on to".
The Whole Story: In the year 2011 Rabbi David Frid was diagnosed with ALS, which causes complete deterioration of the muscles in the body. In the beginning, he heroically fought to function on his own, even after he was confined to a wheelchair. At present, the disease has progressed to the point where he is now fully paralyzed, on a breathing machine and although fully cognizant, can only communicate with his eyes. He needs 24-hour surveillance and special care to survive. The ongoing costs are mind-boggling. In addition, his wife had to leave her job in order to devote herself to his care.The family cannot continue without your support!
"After his tracheostomy surgery, we couldn't even fathom being able to give R' Dovid quality care at home. It seemed like an impossible dream, but thanks to your kind donations that dream has become a reality! We are forever grateful for your support!!!"
