Matzah food of healing "מיכלא דאסוותא"

Amazing story: Tzvi L. was in a bad car accident this Erev Pesach in Lakewood. His car flipped over and it took a half hour to cut him out. At the hospital they said he had bleeding in the brain and neck injuries and would need multiple surgeries R"L. Leil Seder his wife and he decided to make a Seder in the hospital anyways. The doctor came in and asked "what do you think you are doing?  If you eat and drink now, your surgery will have to be postponed!" They decided to proceed with the Seder. In the morning the hospital ran additional CT and other scans and the doctors were amazed that the results were clean and no surgery was needed!  The Lakewood askonim had given him the name of someone to call for a ride home if he was discharged on Yomtov (he refused to sign discharge papers so a nurse offered to sign for him).
He had someone call the number and the person asked which Floor he was on in the hospital. He was on Floor 4 - and the driver was exactly there already. Why? He had just decided to come on his own. 
The Zohar says that Matzoh on Leil Seder brings a refuah Shleima. Please pass on this story. It is a tremendous inspiration. According to the Zohar, מצה is the “דאסוותא מיכלא - food of healing.

  1. Hmm. If the doctor says not to eat any Rav would tell him that he is not allowed to eat the Matzah....

  2. If a doctor tells someone he has bleeding in his brain and he shouldn't eat matzah because they will have to postpone surgery he should ask a shaalo before doing so.

    V'Chai behom is also a segulah for a refuah shleima

  3. Is this story really a good idea to publish.? People will take the wrong angle of this story and disregard a doctors orders which is against halacha.

    1. Against halacha and putting him/herself in imminent danger.

  4. Perhaps there are some facts missing or the injuries were B"H not as severe as the initial prognosis.

  5. I'm happy to see I'm not the only one who is skeptical of these kinds of stories.

  6. Would you be publishing this story had the results ח"ו the ones that should've been ע"פ דרך הטבע?

    Doctors are not always correct. Sometimes one must eat before a surgery to have strength but the doctor wouldn't allow it in case he will throw up and choke etc. This makes no sense the odds of food to come back up during labor or surgery are less one in a thousand, yet the doctor will follow what he was taught in medical school regardless the true reality for the benefit of the patient. These types of stories happen daily in a hospital. Always have a caring doctor on hand to ask for a second opinion. This is also true when vaccinating your children

    1. Hey bro. U need a reality check and maybe some shots which u missed out on because of your narrow mindedness.

    2. Yes. Never listen to any doctor that tells you it's not important to vaccinate your child. Make sure your children are up to date on all vaccinations for their health and the health of everyone else.

  8. I had a car accident over a year ago. I'm still in some pain. I also had matza Leil Seder and I'm in the still in the same pain as before I ate my matzah (better a lot though since the accident with lots of therapy and medication ). There has to be more to the story. We don't see such open nissim in this generation that applies to all. He must of had a zchus in addition to the matzah eating that I'm lacking. I wish the cure was as easy as eating matza Leil Seder. I am happy for him though. May he continue to have a speedy and complete recovery.

    1. I believe in the nissim of older generations as much as I believe in the nissim of today's generations.

  9. The skeptical comments here are very Misnagdish in nature.
    This man wasn't being סומך on a נס, he simply wanted to be מקיים a דאורייתא the first night of Pesach.

    2. So this irresponsible action of the story's protagonist is to be blamed on Chassidim?

      Delete
    3. There's a reason why the Haskalah did so well amongst the Misnagdim.........

      Delete
    4. And amongst chassidim......

  10. This story is basically true. I know the people. The part about bleeding in the brain and needing surgeries and the doctor saying not to eat is not true at all. He never had a suspected brain injury and was never told not to eat . But other than that the rest of the story is true.He was in an accident and escaped without any injuries.
