It has been 9 months since my Rabbi Levi Deitsch of blessed memory passed away. Driving in the rain through Tysons Corner, Virginia I am thinking of him. There have been some days when I avoided going to Shul, I am sure to avoid painful feelings. Lately I miss him more with the passage of time, probably because my awareness grows of how great his impact on my life has been. Suddenly, a portion of sky opens and the rain becomes a sun shower. A rainbow appears and as I drive on toward Mclean I can see that it is a complete bow. Above is a second very faint bow that lasts only moments. I imagine his voice. "Don't avoid wonderful feelings". 'Sure, sure, sure', I think, remembering his
signature phrasing. I realize he has turned me around again even now, especially now from the inside out. I look up, smiling. B"H"
