Yitzhak ben Nochum z"l - 13 Kislev

The 13th of Kislev is the yahrzeit of my grandfather Yitzhak ben Nochum. My grandfather was a doctor at Temple University for fifty years of his life. Besides being a doctor he was also a professor of medicine at the medical school. One year he was asked to give the address to the graduating class. Below are some of his words from that day in 1957:

"Although we are constantly moving forward in scientific medicine, there is a great need to return to the better doctor-patient relationship that existed in the past...Certainly we must teach science and treat our patients scientifically, but we must not worship science and in doing so neglect man as a person."

May the neshoma of my grandfather have an aliya today, the day of his yahrzeit.
