Uncle Mordechai was battling for his life. He had been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.
We visited his home a day before Yom Kippur. While there, I noticed a piano in the living room.
“Do you play?” I asked him.
He quietly sat down on the piano bench and stunned us with this gorgeous rendition of Avinu Malkeinu.
I couldn’t help but think
that this was more a prayer
than a song.
Unfortunately he passed away soon afterwards. May is memory be a blessing.
