THESE TOO ARE FROM SINAI

With the help of Hashem, several years ago I completed writing a commentary on bentching.  (As an aside, if you are interested in purchasing this bencher, please call me at (718)-916-300 or email me at RMMWSI@aol.com.)  As the bencher went through the rigorous editing process, I found something that all proofreaders are very allergic to: starting a sentence with the word, ‘And.’  In the world of proofreading,
 

DOCTORS AND MEDICINE

The Gemara in Bava Kama, daf peh heh, amud alef says that from the posuk, “Verapo Yerape” we see that a doctor has permission to heal another person and one can’t say, “I will rely on Hashem to heal me.” The Mishna in Kidushin, daf peh beis, amud alef says that the best doctors go to Gehinom.
