From The Rabbi's Desk This week’s הפטרהtells the story of the ארבעה אנשים מצורעים- the four men stricken with צרעתwho are forced to live outside of the city of שמרוןat the time that the city was under siege by ארם. Facing the possibility of starvation, stranded between the city and the enemy, they are forced to decide whether to re-enter שמרון,try to partake in what little food they have left and extend their life a bit, or enter the enemy camp where they may be killed instantly, but they also may be taken as slaves and be fed. They decide to approach the enemy camp. Without ruining the ending, things turn out for the best. The Talmud ( )עבודה זרה דף כז עמוד בnotes that the fact that the men in question were allowed to risk their lives and comments לחיי שעה לא חיישינן- we are not concerned with the possibility of living a short period of time. One cannot read the Talmud as saying that even one moment of life is irrelevant. Rather, Rav Moshe Feinstein ( )אגרות משה חלק יו"ד ג סימן לו explains this to mean that if a person is faced with a short time to live but can take steps that could either extend their life signifcantly or kill them instantly (e.g. a risky surgery), they have a right to take that risk, even though they may be shortening their life. [See the source for a discussion of what the odds of survival must be.] Life presents us all with ups and downs, happy times and diffcult times. We must remember, even in the darkest of days, that life, every moment, is a blessing that we should appreciate and preserve, and is always better than the alternative.
