  1. I can’t believe it. We daven in the same shul. He used to sit behind me. After I leined Shabbat morning and headed back to my seat, he extended his hand to me and said “chazak uvaruch ” . Little did I know then that it would be the last time. If this is not a wake up call, I don’t know what is.
