How to Cope When Life Gets Really Challenging

Dina Hurwitz shares the story of her life with her husband, the beloved Rabbi Yitzi, who was diagnosed with ALS as he turned 40 years old. This talk was filmed at a women’s event hosted by Chabad of Talbiya and Chabad of Baka in Jerusalem, Israel (2019).

This lecture was incredible. I went through personal problems and have had the privilege to listen to this at the end of the difficult process.

I am trying hard to learn and internalize these lessons on my own. I am so grateful for Mrs. Hurwitz for sharing this wisdom with the rest of us. I am so appreciative, beyond words, to have stumbled across this lecture.

The experience coping with ALS as described here echoed with my experience coping with my dissertation to complete my doctorate. I have no doubt that Mrs. Hurwitz will continue to benefit others through her teachings.

Thank you! Reply

I cannot understand how so many people lack compassion - especially the wealthy. Those who offer food to the poor, are people who have suffered from hunger. In South Africa, there are innumerable homeless. How do these unfortunate survive the winters? I was unaware that a Jewish person could be homeless. Surely a Jewish organisation could assist this unfortunate person! Reply

I’m homeless and I’m still practicing more of my traditional beliefs. Reply
