No cynicism, no bills - a gift is simple on the world

Once, on Simchat Torah, I went to the synagogue with my little daughter. Unfortunately the bags of sweets handed out ran out, and my house burst into hysterical cries.


One three-year-old boy saw her, looked at her again and again, until he felt sorry for her and he approached her with his bag in his hand. "Take one thing out of the bag," he told her generously. There were five popcorn kernels, four pieces of beeswax, three bamba and a giant lollipop.


My daughter was not confused, put her hand in the bag and took the candy. No cynicism, no bills - a gift is simple on the world. Not yes an older person ...


From "Create your quarry"

Rabbi Eli Horowitz
