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.
