Live near a doctor


"A city must possess ten things before a Torah scholar may live there: A court that punishes, a tzedakah collection that is collected by two and distributed by three, a synagogue, a bathhouse, a bathroom, a doctor, a phlebotomist, a scribe, and a schoolteacher.

"They cited Rabbi Akiva as saying that it must also contain fruit, for these illuminate the eyes."

(Talmud, Sanhedrin 17b)

Have a great day,
