                        by Rabbi David Wolpe
                        After enduring both a brain tumor and chemotherapy for lymphoma,
                        I learned something about how to be sick, and how to visit those
                        who are sick. As a Rabbi I have also seen these lessons enacted –
                        and too often violated. So here are ten simple rules and suggestions:

                        1 ~ Do not greet the sick person           4 ~ If help is refused, or offers and
                        morosely. If he is feeling well, he        good wishes met with silence, do          That does not make the sickness
                        must now accommodate your level            not be hurt. Sometimes coordinating       welcome, but it can give it a new
                        of sadness. One who is sick does           help, checking on it, thanking, is        and powerful dimension. Don’t
                        not spend all day thinking, “I am          more trouble and fatigue inducing         assume the person cannot find
                        sick.” She may be thinking about           than refusal. Responding to even          light in this darkness. But it is their
                        lunch. Greet normally, and allow the       the most gracious message requires        light to find; yours at most, gently
                        patient to guide the emotional tone.       energy the person may need                to suggest.
                        2 ~ If you visit someone going             elsewhere.
                                                                                                             8 ~ Even a dying person can still
                        through chemotherapy, remember:            5 ~ The Jewish tradition esteems          teach. Indeed these may be his
                        losing hair is visible and dramatic,       the art of medicine. If you have the      or her most powerful moments. I
                        but not catastrophic. After all, the       blessing of good doctors and nurses       study each week with a 93 year-
                        Talmud tells us that Rabbi Akiba was       you understand why. Anyone who            old man who still remembers his
                        bald. Yul Brenner was bald. This is        has ever spent an uncomfortable           mother, some seventy years ago,
                        usually more trying for women than         night in a hospital is not likely to      saying to him as she died, “Do not
                        for men, but it is a stage to seeking      undervalue nurses. A good nurse is        be afraid. It happens to everyone.”

                        nor a symbol; just a side-effect.          So don’t hesitate to ask the person       that you wish to learn from them,
                        3 ~ Offers to help should be specif-       if he or she trusts/likes their doctor,   not only comfort them.

                                                                                                             9 ~ No matter your theology, there
