Prayer or MedicineWhich
From Memoirs of Rabbi J T
Loeb
Once upon making our rounds
to collect funds for a public
cause from Jewish citizens in
Washington Mr S O and I had
approached on the subject a
wellknown business man in X
street and as was our custom
in the cases that proved unusual
ly stubborn we made our appeal
here in particularly strong
terms We did our utmost to
make clear the urgent necessity
of the worthy cause We used
up all the diplomacy at our com
mand in an effort to induce the
brother to offer some contribu
tion But all this to no avail
The gentleman in question lent
no ear to our many pleadings
He remained cold and stiff as an
automaton and absolutely re
fused to respond to the call of
charity Whereupon I sought to
explain to him the importance of
the Zedakah as a lifesaving
virtue citing thereby the Scrip
tural passage vzedaka tazil mi
maves Benevolence will deliver
from death as also some of the
Talmudic sayings to the same
effect The brother listened with
peculiar grace to this last part
of the speech I thought that
I had conquered and was about
to celebrate my virtory when the
brother suddenly rose from his
seat as if determined upon hay
ing the upper hand in the mat
ter and in a tone of triumph he
raised the following question
If uedakah charity benevo
lence prayer or any other thing
that goes with religion be the
only essential in the subsistence
of life or the wellbeing of hu
manity why then buy medicine
or call for a doctor in the case of
sickness Why not grasp the
Prayer Book the Psalter or any
other object of a religious na
ture and be cured forever from
every possible ailment The
question thus propounded creat
ed a stir among those present
and curious though it may seem
this innocent query of the sim
pleton is ever likely to irritate
the minds or even shake the
faith of the many In this par
ticular instance the practical
seemed to have the mastery over
the ideal and finding it difficult
to explain away the coarseness
of the argument in a direct way
I hit upon the parable for a solu
tion of the problem and thus I
said Let me relate to you a
little story one that is quite fa
miliar to many of our new arriv
als in this country and which
bears an essential reference to
the subject of our discussion
9Duo jOiCnoui umssny y
took sick He was advised to
consult a physician and obtain
medical treatment This being
his first experience of the kind
he was altogether unaware of
the nature of the doctors busi
ness Arriving at the office of
the medicine man he waited his
next and then told the doctor
the details of the case The med
ico austere and dignified hands
him a prescription with the fol
lowing directions Take this
with two tablespoonf uls of warm
water three times a day The
unsophisticated moujick grabs
the precious piece of paper for
which he paid two roubles and
gazing at it for some time and
wondering what charm is con
tained in those mysterious char
acters the sage has jotted there
on he finally stows it into his
bosompocket and repairs direct
ly to his home Arriving at his
house he puts the slip of paper
in a potful of water and boils it
until he thought it was time to
help himself with two table
spoon of the liquid Upon
his second visit to the doctors
office the doctor asked if he was
taking the medicine regularly
