Is Torah the antidote to sickness -A Moment with Rabbi Avigdor Miller Zt"l #476
Parshas Bamidbar 5779
Erev Shavuos


Chosh bchol gufo ya'asok b'Torah, (one who feels pain in his entire body should study Torah. Eruvin 54:a) If a person is not feeling well should he go to sleep and overlook this chazal?


If a person is not feeling well, let him look in the Torah, and in the Torah one of the first things he'll see is, vrapei yerapei, it says in the Torah that you have to go to a doctor. If anybody hits somebody, he has to pay him among other things for refuah, the Gemara is full of healing, everywhere you look it's full of healing. Therefore it's no question if you learn the Gemara, it teaches you that you have to heal.

However, suppose you're not able to diagnose your illness, and even if it was diagnosed, you're taking medicines, but the segula of learning Torah is also a way. Because Hashem said, if you're able to utilize your life for learning Torah, then you deserve to live longer and get well. So learning Torah is a segula to get well.

However, does it mean you stop eating? You don't have to eat anymore? No, you have to eat anyhow, even if you are learning Torah. So even if you are learning Torah you have to take medicines too.

Good Shabbos To All

This is transcribed from questions that were posed to Harav Miller by the audience at the Thursday night lectures.
