Surgeon Without Surgery

Dr. Leonard Lovitch is a general surgeon in Whittier, California. Originally members of a Conservative temple in North Hollywood, he and his wife were first introduced to Chabad in the mid-1970s. At one point, still in the beginning of his career, he was stepping on an unstable stool when he slipped and injured his eye. The prognosis wasn’t good, and he decided to ask the Rebbe for advice. He did, in fact, get an answer from the Rebbe, but it had no apparent connection to the injury of his eye. (1982)

It wasn't the Rebbe, the Rebbe was only a vessel for HaShem to help enact what was needed for the healing. Baruch HaShem Reply

I agree, but I still required the Rebbe's intervention for my healing, no doubt! Reply
