    Yitzhak:

    Is there a difference in connotation between החלמה מהירה and the more traditional רפואה שלימה?

    In any event, I second the good wishes.

    I was thinking about the same question when I wrote it. In modern Israeli Hebrew החלמה מהירה seems to be more common, although I don’t know why.

    Sad. He was my closest first cousin since age 5.
    He was a great archeologist, patriot, family man and a Mentch.
