In April, Rabbi David Wilfond, a new immigrant who had recently been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, took a vacation to Herzliya with his wife. The preceding fall and winter had not been particularly easy for Wilfond. In November, he underwent a six-hour surgery to remove a tumor and in December began chemotherapy treatment.The vacation was an incredibly welcome respite. As the father of three children under five, it was the first time in two and a half years that Wilfond was able to sleep through the whole night.The view from the room was “heavenly,” looking out on sun, sand and sky. In the mornings, the fresh squeezed orange juice tasted like “true health” and when they left, he said that both he and his wife felt refreshed not only individually but also as a couple.
