Gershon Wachtel

Gershon Wachtel
A devastating storm tore a beautiful branch off the family tree of Gershon and Chaya Wachtel, some fourteen years ago.
...
Gershon worked in insurance, and Chaya kept the home fires burning, a busy home of eleven active children.
...
Gershon was a classical pianist by avocation, and was in the beginning stages of opening an insurance agency, after working in kosher food management, by vocation.
...
Gershon started looking for him. Up by the mess hall. Down by the lake. He ran into some friends as they continued looking.
...
Gershon vowed he would never play piano again. He knew with absolute certainty he could not survive the pain.
...
"We had no money, literally," Gershon says. "I was gone till 10 or 11 each night for the next few months.

Gershon remembers his beautiful son, and knows he was a special neshamah (soul), the kind that makes you feel his days had a special and unusual meaning, that perhaps his life trajectory was meant to be different.

"I realized that everyone lives with problems, many with very big ones. I share with people, and what I can't say with words, I say with music."
Gershon shares the power of the heart to heal.
...
Gershon describes his prayer and relationship with G-d as rich and intimate, a wellspring that has not diminished as the fourteen years have passed, but has intensified with time.
"I feel I have joined a very exclusive club," he pauses, "whose admission price is very steep. A club that allows you a special relationship with G-d. It's the kind of relationship that normally can't be attained without extremely great effort."
