A miraculous story took place recently in Jerusalem, which highlights the power of kavana during davening. An avreich, Yair ben Sara, was completely healed from a fatal illness. The details of the story have been confirmed by Yair himself as well as his wife.
Yair, an avreich who lives in the Sanhedria neighborhood, of Jerusalem, was diagnosed with a deathly form of cancer earlier this year. The doctor told him that he had only months to live.
On erev Rosh Hashana, the members of the kollel where Yair learned decided to accept upon themselves not to speak in shul. All 150 avreichim signed their name on the agreement and accepted upon themselves not to speak one word or even gesture to each other while in shul.
The avreichim took the agreement very seriously and there was total silence during davening.
After a period of time, Yair and his wife went to the doctor to receive the results of the most recent tests. The cancer was completely gone.
B’Chadrei Chareidim quoted R’ Yaakov Zilberman who said: “I called directly to the avreich [to confirm the story]. An emotional R’ Yair told me tearfully that the doctor also cried as he held the x-rays. He asked me to publicize the miracle in public.”
