Light Unto the Nations…the continuing story

At my synagogue here in Seattle,  the weekly parsha page that I edit includes a feature called “Light Unto the Nations”.  It’s a feature that highlights Jewish – and more specifically – Israeli contributions to society. I already have this coming Shabbat’s story picked out: The piece has appeared in multiple publications since Motza’ey Shabbat (Saturday night): It involves a new treatment for ALS – Lou Gherig’s Disease that has proven effective with an elderly Israeli man.  Enjoy!
