The Story Behind Yitzi’s Song: About Rabbi Yitzi Hurwitz’s Amazing Inspiration

Despite facing one of life's most difficult challenges, Rabbi Yitzi Hurwitz continues to inspire all those who come in contact with him to greater joy and faith. Diagnosed four years ago with bulbar onset, a dreaded form of ALS, "Rabbi Yitzi", as he is affectionately known, is now 95% paralyzed and no longer able to speak or breathe on his own. Before his diagnosis, Rabbi Yitzi, his wife Dina and their seven children, were Chabad emissaries in Temecula, California for 14 years.
