Saving Three Lives

Dr. Harold Serebro was surprised when the rabbi of his synagogue walked into his practice holding a file of x-rays belonging to a fellow congregant. The rabbi’s dilemma: doctors were insisting on immediate surgery, but the Rebbe was of an entirely different opinion. (Early 1980s)

RE: miracle of medical error Your comment assumes that the Rebbe noticed or otherwise knew that the x-rays where someone else's. But who is to fathom the inner mechanics of a miracle? Perhaps the Rebbe himself did not know why he was to oppose the surgery. For all we know, he just sensed that it was not for her, and that was it. Reply

miracle of medical error Why would not Rebbe say that the patient's name on report is not the same as the patient's name on X-ray? Why it is good to make a miracle from medical error? Reply
