It would be ingratitude on my part did I not admit that I owe my well-being to Christian Science. About two years ago I was confined to one of our hospitals, getting ready for a very dangerous operation. As I was not expected to live, my relatives advised me to make my will; which was done, and my wife was telegraphed for, as she was traveling in Europe at the time. Fortunately for me the operation did not take place, as I was considered too weak for the ordeal. At the end of six weeks I left the hospital, seemingly a physical wreck, patched up but not cured, with the operation to take place as soon as I was stronger. In the mean time I went from one doctor to another and from one remedy to another, until I stumbled on Christian Science; and I was ripe and ready for it. Although I had been reared in the letter of the orthodox Jewish faith, I found in Christian Science the true religion, and I started in all sincerity to practise it in my daily life. God was very good to me. I improved from the start, and although my healing came slowly I had the utmost faith that I would get well,—be healed completely,—and so it was. I enjoy the best of health and have gained about fifty pounds. From a business standpoint I can say that my needs are abundantly provided for by divine Love, which "always has met and always will meet every human need" (Science and Health, p. 494)—our needs and not our wants.

Words cannot express my gratitude towards Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, for this beautiful truth. May her works be a shining star for others as well as for my coreligionists.
