This is my nephew Jordan. He’ll be 2 in July. In this photo he’s taking a bath after we came back from megillah reading. As you can see he’s a total cutie and one of the hardest things about moving to Israel was leaving Jordan and his cousin Noam behind in Canada. I left Montreal that night, sad that it would be a while before I got to see him again.
Well, I stoppped off in New York on my way back Jerusalem. Yesterday I got a call from my sister. Apparently Jordan has a tumor in his tummy. They ran tests and it is cancerous. The good news is that it is treatable and he ought to be eventually fine. He’s in the oncology ward at the hospital right now and he is mighty pissed.
Could you all do me a little favour and think of him in your prayers? His Hebrew name is Nissim ben Rachel. My family and I would totally appreciate it.
