Due to advertisements that recently surfaced in the Jewish community, Rabbi Dr. Aaron Glatt – Associate Rabbi at the Young Israel of Woodmere and Chairman of the Department of Infectious Disease and Hospital Epidemiologist at Mount Sinai South Nassau Hospital – took it upon himself to deliver one of his Motza’ei Shabbos talks that became commonplace during the heat of the pandemic, this time refuting the ads’ talking points. The stream was aired live this past Saturday night via the Young Israel of Woodmere’s platform.

Life can be hard. So hard. Everyone has their own story, and no one feels understood in their struggle. The examples are endless, and no less devastating than one another. A difficult child, a sick spouse, an overbearing parent, the loss of a loved one, financial struggle, self-deprecation, suffered abuse, trouble in shidduchim, destroyed reputation, commitment difficulty, an overshadowing sibling, a learning disability, judgmental home environment… each a catch-phrase that cheapens the desolation it causes.
