6 inches of snow = 16 shul attendees + 1 ambulance :(

Yesterday morning, we got a minyan just barely in time for the Torah reading, and nearly lost it when half the minyan went out to the lobby to watch the paramedics carry out a congregant who was having a serious health crisis.  Fortunately, that congregant is still alive (albeit not exactly well), which is more than I can say for the two other congregants whom we lost within the past three weeks.  The Mal'ach HaMavet/Angel of Death has been too frequent a visitor, lately.  :(

Eep! It sounds like quite a rough shabbos. Wishing a refuah shleimah to your co-congregant, and strength to you and your community, in such a difficult communal time.

Unfortunately, this is an old story--we've had more people on the congregation's mi-sheh-berach (roughly, prayers for the sick) list than people present in synagogue for a number of years. But as our elderly congregation gets even older, it ain't gettin' any better. :( Thanks for your good wishes.
