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.
