Journal 6- Bikur Cholim

Last Friday, the 6th Grade didn’t go anywhere for their mitzvah project. We heard a lecture about visiting the sick (bikur cholim) by Rabbi Olitzky. Then, we watched a 22 minute documentary about kids with cancer. It was sad. It almost made me cry. Then, we watched a lip singing for the song “What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger” by cancer kids at Seattle Children Hospital.¬†¬†Then, we made pillowcases for kids in Jacksonville who have cancer. I liked it. It was a really nice mitzvah to do, because we helped kids with a horrible disease.

  1. Blind faith is intellect’s most deadly foe. Intellect that would surrender to faith has forfeited its very nature, its right to be. True faith, however, is not blind. On the contrary, it is an affinity with that which is higher than its own being, a sense of nothingness before the Infinite. It carries a vision that cannot be attained by intellect on its own, yet one that opens windows for the mind, so that it too can see beyond its own self and choose from a higher perspective. And so, the mind that fears faith will choose that which is best for itself, while the mind that has found a partner in faith will choose truth that is absolute.
