I guess there's no saying "resistance is futile" to father time. Rabbi & Borg Leader Noach Weinberg founder of Aish HaTorah (missionaries to secular jews) has passed away. Not even of old age. It was from cancer and broken bones. Yes indeedie. After all that talk in an Aish website article once about Sukkot being a bailout plan for jews ..... oops ... not for Weinborg! XD
I feel that a lesson that can be learned from weinborg's death is that when a situation comes up, always look at it realistically and come up with a strategy on what steps you are going to take to make things better in the real world, as opposed to "torah tefeilah and mitzvoitz" (torah study, prayer, and following commandments).
A real world strategy towards making things better for yourself is preferable to pie in the sky god in the sky, prayer god give me this give me that and then waiting forever for it to happen while you are studying the oh so facking relevant (note sarcasm) information that the talmud has to offer us like on animal sacrifices and shit like that.
Do your own research. Go to work and keep earning paychecks. Only you can your life better for yourself. Pursue your happiness.
