O

ne Rosh Hashanah, on the first day, a Rabbi of a small congregation gave the sermon of his life. With passion, he discussed a contemporary issue. He quoted traditional and modern sources. He showed humor. He touched the congregation. After the service, everyone congratulated the Rabbi on his sermon. That day, the members of the Shul were proud. For them, they had the greatest of Rabbis. Wow, what a sermon! Then came the Second Day of Rosh Hashanah. The Rabbi again was on fire. But shortly after he started, the congregation realized that he was giving the exact opposite sermon as the day before. On the day before, the Rabbi had taken one position of a controversial issue. The next day, he took the opposite view. Again, he quoted modern and traditional sources. He spoke with such passion. After the sermon on the second day, the congregation members had some mixed feelings. They again witnessed a great sermon. But some questioned whether there was something wrong in speaking both sides of an issue on consecutive days. Some actually went to the Rabbi and questioned his speaking so passionately about the same issue from both sides. The Rabbi responded: “Most Shuls don’t have money to bring in speakers on one side

of a major issue, let alone two separate speakers for both sides. For the little you pay me, you got both sides!” Two issues ago in this publication, I wrote a piece regarding the new movie “Inglourious Basterds.” I wrote how there is no real need to create fiction regarding heroism among Jews during the Holocaust period. There are plenty cases of heroic acts, acts that are often seen as even more heroic because of the difficult times and circumstances. I detailed a few such heroic acts that remain largely unknown, even though in the first act that I described close to 2000 individuals were saved and in the second scores of individuals were saved. My point: Before we embark on creating fictional accounts of Jewish heroes, we should do our best to publicize the true incidents, to immortalize true heroes. Boy, did I get interesting responses from that article. Most seemed to agree with my basic premise that we must publicize the real acts of heroism as most heroic stories from the Holocaust period are still not widely known. However, a vocal minority disagreed strongly with my article. They countered that we must create an image of the heroic Jew so that if, G-d forbid, we are ever facing the same situation, Jews will fight back and not just “walk like sheep to the slaughter.”

I got to thinking and questioning that while I remain convinced that there remain many, perhaps hundreds (if not more) true acts of heroism that remain largely unknown, is there a benefit of creating through fiction potential role models that can guide us in the future? Can a movie like “Inglourious Basterds” serve a purpose, giving Jews superhero role models for the future? Before I comment about the potential effect and impact of the movie, you, the reader, should know whether this is a movie worth talking about. Did I like the movie? The answer is: Definitely YES! Quentin Tarantino re-creates the French countryside and the capital city Paris to properly reflect how they were during the Nazi occupation. He tells the story of the role of Nazi propaganda and filmmaking during this period. The historicity of the setting and situation are spot on. Tarantino often is well known for going “over the top” in his story telling. Are there some outrageous components of this movie? Yes. Without giving away too many details of the movie, the “scalping” of the Nazis after they are killed is more than a little outrageous. Yet, the basics of the movie seem believable and possible. A woman wanting to avenge her family’s killing is most believable. That a group of Jews would want to destroy Hitler and his hierarchy also rings true. This is a movie which thinking Jews should see. It presents a “what could have happened” scenario which gets us to thinking whether the U.S. should have done something like this. We question whether there should not only have been local insurrections against the Nazis, but could there have been larger attempts at breaking down the Nazi leadership and machinery. A movie that brings about so much thinking is by my definition a movie worth seeing.

The fact that the movie combines seriousness with humor makes it even more watchable. I recommend it (at least 3 ½ stars out of 4). Is there harm in creating fictional Jewish superheroes? Probably not. If we set aside dreams that I had as a child where I was able to fly like superman and the possibility that a young child with similar dreams may have tried to fly off of a roof, there does not appear to be anything wrong with the creation of superheroes. Superheroes can be inspirational. They can rekindle our optimism that ultimately, good wins out over bad. Especially in bad economic times or times of tragedy, superheroes can awaken us and make us feel good. There is continued interest in the characters of Superman, Batman, Spiderman, and the others because of the victory of good over evil and related scenarios they help to create. Similarly, there is a place for the “Inglourious Basterds” who are able to win out over the evil Nazis, even able to kill Hitler to bring an end to the war. So many people during the war and after, and even young people born long after the war, question whether there can be a G-d in a world where six million can be killed. “Inglourious Basterds” shouts out, there is not only a G-d, there can be victory over evil where individuals of different backgrounds can help win the good fight. While I still feel it is our duty and responsibility to tell the true stories of heroism which come from the Holocaust period, I agree with those who see a good also in creating images of heroes that will help provide the model for a different kind of action in the future. With a warning that parts of the movie are violent and somewhat difficult to watch, I recommend that you see the movie and tell me what you think. •

The verb tense differs dramatically from the beginning of the sentence to the end. Normally a plea is said in the active tense. It is uttered as a command. "Give ear O heavens." "Listen my people." "Lend me your ear." When it comes to the heavens, Moshe expresses his appeal in an active manner. When it comes to the earth however, the expression becomes passive: "May the earth hear." It is almost as if he is not commanding but submissively acquiescing. "I cannot command the earth to pay attention, rather, may it overhear my pleas." The Ohr HaChaim points out this anomaly and wonders why Moshe tells the heavens to listen, but he does not include the earth in that directive. Instead Moshe says that the earth shall hear, almost as if the proverbial earth is listening in the background to the prophecy he directed toward their heavenly counterparts. Rabbi Yissachar Frand, Magid Shiur in Yeshiva Ner Israel, Baltimore, and noted author and lecturer, tells a story that he heard from a Rabbi in Dallas, Texas.

"Rabbi," he said, "I'd like to make a contribution." . He proceeded to hand over a check for ten thousand dollars. The rabbi was flabbergasted. He did not know this man, nor had the man ever seen the Rabbi. Yet, he just handed over a tremendous gift to the synagogue. "Please, " said the rabbi. "There must be a reason. After all, you are giving this donation to a rabbi whom you do not know and to a shul in which you do not participate. Please tell me the reason." "The man answered very simply. "Not long ago I was in Israel. I went to the Wall. There I saw a man. He was obviously a very observant Jew. He was praying with such fervor, with unparalleled enthusiasm and feeling. I just stood there and listened. I heard his pleas and supplications, I saw him sway with all his might, I saw his outpouring of faith, love, and devotion all harmoniously blending as an offering to G-d. From the

My grandfather, Rabbi Yaakov Kamenetzky of blessed memory, explains that the word for influence in the Hebrew language, hashpa'ah, comes from the same root as the word slant or incline, shipuah. There are two ways to water a garden; one is to douse the vegetation directly. That takes effort and constant wetting. A better way that is more practical is to build a slated roof from which the steady flow of rain will irrigate the vegetation. Moshe teaches us that to the heavens we may have to shout. But we don't have to shout at the earth. Because when we speak to the heavens with fervor and enthusiasm, the earth listens as well. โ€ข Rabbi M. Kamenetzky โ€ข Courtesy of www.torah.org

One day a man walked into the office of his orthodox shul in Dallas. The man was obviously not an observant Jew. In fact, the Rabbi never saw him in the synagogue before.

day I saw that man pray, I could not get him out of my mind. If this is Judaism, I want to be part of it. I want to help perpetuate it." Perhaps Moshe is teaching us the significance of an active, forceful, message and its passive ramifications. Effective influence may not only come when talking to a particular individual, rather it may also come when others hear.

O

nce, on the evening before Yom Kippur, one of the chassidim of Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk asked his Rebbe to allow him to see how he, Rabbi Elimelech, observes the custom of kaparot. "How I do kaparot?" repeated Rabbi Elimelech. "How do you do kaparot?" "I am an ordinary Jew -- I do what everyone else does. I hold the rooster in one hand, the prayer book in the other, and recite the text, 'This is my exchange, this is in my stead, this is my atonement...'" "That's exactly what I do," said Rabbi Elimelech. "I take the rooster in one hand, the prayer book in the other, and recite the text. Actually, there might be a certain difference between your kaparot and mine: you probably make sure to use a white rooster, while to me it makes no difference: white, black, brown -- a rooster's a rooster..." But the chassid persisted that his Rebbe's kaparot was certainly no ordinary event. He had been coming to Lizhensk to pray with the Rebbe every Yom Kippur for more than twenty years now, and had always wanted to observe his Rebbe at this most solemn moment. "You want to see an extraordinary kaparot?" said Rabbi Elimelech. "Go observe how Moshe the tavern-keeper does kaparot. Now, there you'll see something far more inspiring than my own, ordinary kaparot." The chassid located Moshe's tavern at a crossroads several miles outside of Lizhensk and asked to stay the night. "I'm sorry," said the tavern-keeper. "As you see, this is a small establishment, and we don't have any rooms to let. There's an inn a small distance further down the road." "Please," begged the chassid, "I've been traveling all day, and I want to rest awhile. I don't need a room -- I'll just

called to his wife, "bring me the second notebook."

"O.K.," said Moshe. "We'll be closing up shortly, and then you can get some sleep."

This, too, was a diary -- of all the troubles and misfortunes that had befallen him in the course of the year. On this day Moshe was beaten by a gang of peasants, on that day his child fell ill; once, in the dead of winter, the family had frozen for several nights for lack of firewood; another time their cow had died, and there was no milk until enough rubles had been saved to buy another.

After much shouting, cajoling and threatening, Moshe succeeded in herding his clientele of drunken peasants out the door. The chairs and tables were stacked in a corner, and the room, which also served as the tavern-keeper's living quarters, readied for the night. Midnight had long passed, and the hour of kaparot was approaching. The chassid, wrapped in his blanket under a table, feigned sleep, but kept watch in the darkened room, determined not to miss anything. Before dawn, Moshe rose from his bed, washed his hands and recited the morning blessings. "Time for kaparot!" he called quietly to his wife, taking care not to wake his guest. "Yentel, please bring me the notebook -- it's on the shelf above the cupboard."

When he had finished reading the second notebook, the tavern-keeper lifted his eyes heavenward and said: "So you see, dear Father in Heaven, I have sinned against You. Last year I repented and promised to fulfill Your commandments, but I repeatedly succumbed to my evil inclination. But last year I also prayed and begged You for a year of health and prosperity, and I trusted in You that it would indeed be this way. "Dear Father, today is the eve of Yom Kippur, when everyone forgives and is forgiven. Let us put the past behind us. I'll accept my troubles as atonement for my sins, and You, in Your great mercy, shall do the same."

Moshe sat himself on a small stool, lit a candle, and began reading from the notebook, unaware that his "sleeping" guest was wide awake and straining to hear every word. The notebook was a diary of all the misdeeds and transgresMoshe took the two notebooks in his sions the tavern-keeper had committed hands, raised them aloft, circled them in the course of the year, the date, time three times above his head, and said: and circumstance of each scrupulously "This is my exchange, this is in my noted.

Sukkah: The "Easy" Mitzvah 30

From the Chassidic Masters

How [does one fulfill] the mitzvah of dwelling in the sukkah? One should eat, drink, and live in the sukkah, both day and night, as one lives in one’s house on the other days of the year: for seven days a person should make his home his temporary dwelling, and his sukkah his permanent dwelling. Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chaim 639:1 G-d says... “I have one easy mitzvah, and sukkah is its name” Talmud, Avodah Zarah 3a “In sukkot you shall dwell for seven days,” instructs the Torah, “...in order that your generations shall know that I made the children of Israel dwell in sukkot when I took them out of the land of Egypt.” Our sages, noting the Torah’s use of the verb “to dwell” in the above verses, define the mitzvah of sukkah as a commandment that, for the duration of the festival of Sukkot (Tishrei 15 to 21), the sukkah is to become our primary dwelling place. Everything ordinarily done in the home should be done in the sukkah. So every autumn, just as the weather is turning inhospitable, we move outdoors. For a full week, we exchange our regular home for a home which leaves us at the mercy of the elements, demonstrating our trust in G-d’s providence and protection, as our ancestors did when “following Me in the wilderness, in an uncultivated land.” Dwelling in the sukkah for seven days is a beautiful and inspiring experience; however, one would hardly describe it as “easy.” Yet this is the mitzvah singled out by the Talmud as G-d’s “easy mitzvah”! The Commanding Connection “Mitzvah,” the Torah’s word for the divine precepts which guide and govern our lives, has a dual meaning: the word means both “commandment” and “connection.” In commanding us the mitzvot, G-d created the means through which we may establish a connection with Him. The hand that distributes charity, the mind that ponders the wisdom of Torah, the heart that soars in prayer, even the stomach that digests the matzah eaten on the first night of Passover—all become instruments of the divine will. There are mitzvot for each limb, organ and faculty of man, and mitzvot governing every area of life, so that no part of

31

Sep. 25-Oct. 23 ,2009

us remains uninvolved in our relationship with the Creator. Therein lies the uniqueness of the mitzvah of sukkah. While other mitzvot each address a certain aspect of our persona, the mitzvah of sukkah provides a medium by which the totality of man is engaged in the fulfillment of G-d’s will. All of the person enters into and lives in the sukkah. “Sukkah is the only mitzvah into which a person enters with his muddy boots,” goes the Chassidic saying. For the seven days of Sukkot, the sukkah is our home—the environment for our every endeavor and activity. Man and Turf The specialty of the sukkah as an all-embracing medium of connection with G-d is best understood in light of the significance of the “home” to the human being. Our sages point out how deeply rooted is man’s desire for a home. The desire for a home is much more than the need for shelter and security—the satisfaction of these needs alone, without a plot of land to call one’s own, does not satisfy the craving for a home. The Talmud goes so far as to say that “One who does not possess a homestead is not a man.” The need for a home is intrinsic to the soul of man and a defining aspect of the human state. Thus, a person’s identification with his home is not confined to the hours he spends within its walls. Also when he is at work, visiting with friends or taking a stroll in the park, it is as the owner of this particular home that he works, visits or strolls. Since his very humanity is incomplete without it, it is part and parcel of everything he does. For the seven days that we make the sukkah our home, it comes to form an integral part of our identity. Everything we do, including what we do outside of the sukkah, is included in the “connection” with G-d achieved by this mitzvah. Easy as Life Now we might understand why the mitzvah of sukkah is G-d’s “easy” mitzvah. A person can approach the fulfillment of G-d’s commandments in one of two ways: as a duty, or as the purpose of his existence. The “dutiful” observer of the mitzvot sees the purpose of his life in the realization of his own personal ambitions. At the same time, he recognizes that G-d is the master of the universe and is the one who created him, granted him life, and continues to sustain him in every moment of his

• T O A D V E R T I S E P L E A S E C A L L 323-965-1544 •

existence. So he feels duty-bound to obey G-d’s commandments. But then there is the person who understands that “I was not created, but to serve my Creator.” He recognizes this as his true “I” and as the ultimate fulfillment and realization of who and what he is. If one assumes the first approach, regarding the observance of a mitzvah as a duty, there will be both “difficult” and “easy” mitzvot. One might fulfill them all, perhaps even willingly and joyfully, but some will be more pleasant and inspiring, others more tedious and toilsome. The expenditure of time, effort or money that a mitzvah requires will also affect the degree of difficulty one experiences in its fulfillment. But when we see the fulfillment of the divine will as the very stuff of our life, the concept of a difficult mitzvah is nonexistent. All mitzvot are “easy,” for they do not constitute an imposition on our life—they are our life. Indeed, there will be no division between the mitzvah and “non-mitzvah” areas of our life. When we live to implement G-d’s purpose in creation, our entire life—including those activities which are not explicit mitzvah acts—becomes a single, seamless quest to connect to our Creator and serve His will. All mitzvot can be observed in either of the above ways; but there is one mitzvah whose terms of observance call for nothing less than the second approach. The mitzvah of sukkah does not tell us to do something; it tells us to be something—a sukkah-dweller. The way to observe this mitzvah is to make the sukkah our home—our environment, our roots, our very identity—for seven days of each year of our life. And when we apply the model of the mitzvah of sukkah to our observance of all of G-d’s commandments, they, too, assume the all-embracing quality of the sukkah. They, too, become as “easy” as life. •

What is Livescan Fingerprinting? Livescan is an inkless fingerprinting process where fingerprints are electronically transmitted to the Department of Justice for background screening. Ink fingerprinting is still required in many states. However, as a result of legislation passed in 1997, the California Department of Justice (CA-DOJ) has developed the automated background check process, which requires Livescan fingerprints for criminal history background checks that may be required as a condition of employment. Livescan technology replaces the ink process of recording fingerprint images. The CA-DOJ may also forward Livescan fingerprints to the FBI if required.

Who Needs Livescan? Livescan may be required as a condition of employment for: Teachers, Care Givers, Contractors, Security Guards, Nurses, Doctors, Surgeons, Real Estate Licensees, Appraisers, Notaries, DMV Licensed Professionals, Foster Parents, Stock Brokers, Volunteers, and anyone applying for a professional licensing, certification, or permit. Persons applying for foreign adoptions or VISA/Immigration clearances may also need Livescan processing.

One of the special commandments of Sukkot is to take "The Four Kinds," the citrus, the palm branch the willow and myrtle branches. We hold them close together, recite a blessing and, as is customary, wave them to all the four winds and upward and downward. Like all other commandments the mitzvah of Four Kinds should be performed because it is the will of G-d. However, it has its particular significance and meaning. One of the most known explanations is that the Four Kinds represent the unity of all Jews. The citrus, or etrog, combines both delicious taste and a fragrance which is enjoyed by all. It represents the Jew who is both learned in Torah, as well as observant of the mitzvahs. The palm branch, or lulav, is of a tree that bears fruit; dates with good taste, but is odorless. It represents those among Israel who are Torah scholars but do not particularly emphasize good deeds. The myrtle twigs, or hadasim, are fragrant but tasteless. It represents Jews who are filled with good deeds but are not learned in Torah. The branches of willow, or aravot, have neither taste nor smell. It represents those among Jews who are unlearned in Torah and void of good deeds. Putting these four Kinds together teaches us that no one, not even the citrus or the palm branch can be complete without every single Jew - even without the willows. Without unity the citrus alone is no mitzvah at all. We wave them on all sides to signify that G-d is everywhere. â&#x20AC;˘

D

id you ever take a close look at Kol Nidrei, widely considered the most important prayer of Judaism? Read the translation and you might be quite puzzled as to why such a big deal is made out this particular piece of liturgy. It is a simple--albeit strong--statement of annulling vows. Is that the foremost thought on our minds as we enter the synagogue on the eve of the holiest day of the year? Two Jews on an Airplane After completing his morning prayers aboard the El Al flight en route to Tel Aviv, the elderly European Chassid turned to the American Jew sitting next to him and offered the use of his prayer shawl and tefillin. The problem was that a strong language barrier separated the two. The Chassid spoke only Yiddish and Russian, while our modern Jew was only able to converse in English. Even sign language didn't help facilitate communication between these two very different individuals. Finally, in frustration the Chassid blurted out the following--probably the extent of his English vocabulary: "I Jew--you Jew; I tefillin--you tefillin." There was no need to say another word. The man understood. Sure he'd put on tefillin aboard his first flight to Israel. I love this story because it speaks volumes about the common Jewish spark that each of us possess, regardless of who we are and the extent of our Jewish observance. These two Jews had very little in common; they stemmed from different parts of the world, and didn't even share a common language. Yet, when it came to the Jew within, they connected seamlessly; they were one and the same. Suddenly they understood each other perfectly. In truth, there was no barrier at all. Because after all--"I Jew, You Jew." Another one of my favorites is the story of the poor, jobless man who came to the circus looking for work. The only available position was to fill in for a missing tiger. They gave him a tiger's costume and put him in the cage. All was well until Mr. Lion began strolling in his direction. Petrified, the tiger said what a Jew says when faced with imminent death: Shma Yisrael Ado-noi Elo-henu Ado-noi Echad ("Hear O Israel, G-d is our G-d, G-d is one"). To which the lion answered: Baruch shem kevod malchuto leolam va'ed ("Blessed be the name of the glory of His kingdom forever and ever"--the second verse of the Shema). That's the story of the Jews: On the surface we might look very different from one another. Underneath, we're

all the same. Brand Name Judaism The problem is the labels. Every Jew has a label! Orthodox. Conservative. Reform. Reconstructionist. Modern. Traditional. Secular. Religious. The list goes on. Where did all these labels come from? Do you think for a moment that Moses organized the people of Israel around Mt Sinai in accordance with their denominational affiliations? Of course not. These labels are not rooted anywhere in Torah or classical Jewish literature. They are recent inventions that serve absolutely no purpose other than to divide our people. And this, at a time when we need each other more than ever. I think all agree more unity is what we need. As for division amongst our people, we've got plenty of that... When it comes to clothing I'd be the first to agree: labels serve an important purpose in helping us choose our preferred selections in terms of style, quality, etc. But who ever heard of labels for Jews? Think about it. What use are these labels to the Jewish people other than to create partitions along denominational lines? Why can't we all just be "Jewish"? Why the need to label ourselves based on our level of observance? It's true some of us are more religiously observant than others. Is that reason to categorically divide us into splintering groups? Let us each observe Judaism and its precepts to the best of our knowledge and ability, without the need of a name tag proclaiming ourselves a particular brand. In addition to dividing us, the labels also limit our growth as Jews. Once we've been labeled, we no longer feel the need to learn more about our heritage than is typical for members of our particular group. Remove the label, and Judaism is yours to explore, completely and freely, without fear you might cross the line and observe some tradition that's not for your type. See my point? If I'm not Religious--Am I a Bad Jew? Perhaps we subconsciously use labels to lower the bar so we can still feel good about ourselves as Jews even if we're not growing Jewishly. The truth is there's no need for that accommodation. G-d loves us just the same--even if we're not "perfect" Jews. The Lubavitcher Rebbe would always emphasize the value of performing even one single mitzvah (Jewish ob-

B”H

servance). He repeatedly proclaimed that Judaism is not an all-or-nothing religion as some might have you think ("Either observe all of Torah or don't bother with any of it 'cause you're a 'bad' Jew anyway"). This would be the case if G-d were a tyrannical dictator whom we needed to placate. In truth, G-d is a loving father. He asked us to fulfill the mitzvahs, not in quest of power or control, but out of His deep love for each of us--His precious children. With children, it's not perfection you look for. A good parent wants each child to reach their best potential. It's not "all-or-nothing." It's "do-your-best!"

UT ABO TALLY K S N A S NME ODUCT O R I ENV DLY PR N FRIE

A man from the Lubavitch community in Brooklyn once complained to the Rebbe about one of his children who had "left the path" of Torah observance. "I raised all of my children exactly the same way. I can't understand why this one veered away." Replied the Rebbe: "Therein lies the problem. You raised all of your children the same way. But they're not the same. Each child is unique and requires direction and guidance in accordance with his or her individual personality." G-d is a loving, wise parent who has a personal and unique relationship with each of us. Sure, He'd like us all to "reach for the stars" and try to observe Judaism fully in all of its beauty and depth. But that's for long term. For right now what is most important to G-d is that we do our best and continue to grow. If we observe one more mitzvah this year than we did last year--we are making G-d proud! Annulling the Labels So why the whole fuss around Kol Nidrei? On a deeper, mystical level it is much more than just the annulment of vows and promises. It is a powerful declaration of annulling and invalidating any and all labels, restrictions, demarcations, shackles, barriers and name tags that tend to obscure our sparkling inherent Jewish essence. All of us share one single designer label: JEW! We are one very special, indivisible people; the family of G-d's chosen nation. Sure, like any good family we have our share of sibling rivalry. But that doesn't change the fact that "I Jew--You Jew." •

I

t was the first day of Sukkot, and all the congregants in the shul of Rabbi Elimelech of Lizensk were in a festive mood. One could feel the "Yom-Tov" spirit in the atmosphere. As Rabbi Elimelech stood at the lectern and began reciting Hallel, all eyes turned upon him. There was something unusual in his manner this Sukkot. Why did he stop so suddenly in the middle of his swaying as he held the etrog and lulav in his hands to sniff the air? And why did he not go through the Service in his usual leisurely manner? It was evident that something was on his mind, something rather exciting by the look on his radiant countenance. The minute the davening (praying) was over, Rabbi Elimelech hurried to where his brother Rabbi Zusha (who had come to spend the festival with him) was standing, and said to him eagerly: "Come and help me find the etrog which is permeating the whole shul with the fragrance of the Garden of Eden!" And so together they went from person to person until they reached the far corner of the shul where a quiet looking individual was standing, obviously engrossed in his own thoughts. "This is the one," called out Rabbi Elimelech delightedly. "Please, dear friend, tell me who are you and where you obtained this wonderful etrog?"

though I am a poor man and could normally not afford to buy an etrog according to my desire, my young wife, who agrees with me as to its importance, helps me by hiring herself out as cook. Thus she is independent of any financial help from me, and I can use my own earnings for spiritual matters. I am employed as melamed (teacher) in the village of Yanev, which is not far from my native town. One half of my earnings I use for our needs and with the other half I buy an etrog in Lemberg. But in order not to spend any money on the journey I usually go on foot. "This year, during the Ten Days of Repentance, I was making my way on foot as usual, with fifty gulden in my purse with which to buy an etrog, when on the road to Lemberg I passed through a forest and stopped at a wayside inn to have a rest. It was time for 'minchah' so I stood in a corner and davened minchah. "I was in the middle of my prayers when I heard a terrible sound of moaning and groaning, as of one in great anguish. I hurriedly finished my davening so that I could find out what was the trouble, and if I could help in any way. "As I turned towards the man who was in obvious distress, I beheld a most unusual and rough looking person, dressed in peasant garb with a whip in his hands, pouring out his troubles to the inn-keeper at the bar.

"Most certainly I do," answered Rabbi Elimelech emphatically, "I am sure it will be a story worth hearing!"

"From the somewhat confused story, between his sobs, I managed to gather that the man with the whip was a poor Jew who earned his living as a baal agallah (owner of a horse and cart for carting purposes). He had a wife and several children and he barely managed to earn enough to make ends meet. And now, a terrible calamity had be fallen him. His horse, without which he could do nothing, had suddenly collapsed in the forest not far from the inn, and just lay there unable to get up.

"My name," began the quiet-looking man, "is Uri, and I come from Strelisk. I have always regarded taking the "four kinds" on Sukkot as one of my favorite mitzvot, and so, al-

"I could not bear to see the man's despair and tried to encourage him, by telling him that he must not forget that there is a G-d above us who could help him in his trouble, however

The man, looking somewhat startled and bewildered at this unexpected question, replied rather slowly, carefully choosing his words: "With all due respect to you, Rabbi, it is quite a story. Do you wish to sit down and listen to it all?"

serious it seemed to him. " 'I'll sell you another horse for fifty gulden, although I assure you he is worth at least eighty, but just to help you out in your difficulty!' " The inn-keeper was saying to the wagon driver. " 'I haven't even fifty cents, and he tells me I can buy a horse for fifty gulden!' the man said bitterly. "I felt I could not keep the money I had with me for an etrog when here was a man in such desperate plight that his very life and that of his family depended upon his getting a horse. So I said to the inn-keeper: "'Tell me what is the lowest price you would take for your horse?' "The inn-keeper turned to me in surprise. If you pay me on the spot, I will take forty-five gulden, but absolutely not a cent less. I am selling my horse at a loss as it is!' "I immediately took out my purse and banded him fortyfive gulden, the wagon driver looking on, his eyes nearly bulging out of their sockets in astonishment. He was just speechless with relief, and his joy was absolutely indescribable. "'Now you see that the Almighty can help you, even when the situation appears to you to be entirely hopeless!' I said to him as he hurried off with the innkeeper to harness the newly-bought horse to his forsaken cart tied to the stricken horse in the forest. "As soon as they went off, I hurriedly got my few things together and disappeared, as I did not want to be embarrassed by the thanks of the grateful wagon driver. "I eventually reached Lemberg with the remaining five gulden in my pocket, and naturally had to content myself with buying a very ordinary looking but kosher etrog. Usually my etrog is the best in Yanev, and everyone used to come and make a blessing over it , but this year I was ashamed to return home with such a poor-looking specimen, so my wife agreed that I could come here to Lizensk, where nobody knew me." "But my dear Rabbi Uri," cried out Rabbi Elimelech, now that the former had finished his story, "Yours is indeed an exceptional etrog. Now I realize why your etrog has the fragrance of the Garden of Eden in its perfume! Let me tell you the sequel to your story." "When the wagon driver whom you saved thought about his unexpected good fortune, he decided that you must have been none other than the Prophet Elijah whom the Almighty

had sent down to earth in the form of a man, in order to help him in his desperation. Having come to this conclusion the happy wagon driver looked for a way of expressing his gratitude to the Almighty, but the poor man knew not a Hebrew word, nor could he say any prayers. He racked his simple brain for the best way of thanksgiving. "Suddenly his face lit up. He took his whip and lashed it into the air with all his might, crying out with all his being: 'Dear Father in Heaven, I love you very much! What can I do to convince you of my love for you? Let me crack my whip for you as a sign that I love you!' Saying which, the wagon driver cracked his whip into the air three times. "On the eve of Yom Kippur, the Almighty up above was seated on His 'Seat of judgment,' listening to the first prayers of the Day of Atonement. "Rabbi Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev, who was acting as the Counsel for Defense on behalf of his fellow Jews, was pushing a wagon full of Jewish mitzvot to the Gates of Heaven, when Satan appeared and obstructed his path with piles of Jewish sins, so that Rabbi Levi Yitzchak just got stuck there. My brother Rabbi Zusha and I added our strength to help him move his wagon forward, but all in vain; even our combined efforts proved fruitless. "Suddenly there came the sound of the cracking of a whip which rent the air, causing a blinding ray of light to appear, lighting up the whole universe, right up to the very heavens! There we saw the angels and all the righteous seated in a circle, singing G-d’s praise. On hearing the wagon driver's words as he cracked his whip in ecstasy, they responded: 'Happy is the King who is thus praised!' "All at once, the Angel Michael appeared, leading a horse, followed by the wagon driver with whip in hand. "The Angel Michael harnessed this horse to the wagon of mitzvot, and the wagon driver cracked his whip. Suddenly the wagon gave a lurch forward, flattening the piles of sins that had been obstructing the way, and drove it smoothly and easily right up to the Throne of Honor. There the King of Kings received it most graciously and, rising from the Seat of judgment, went over and seated Himself on the Seat of Mercy. A happy New Year was assured." "And now dear Rabbi Uri" concluded Rabbi Elimelech, "you see that all this came about through your noble action. Go home, and be a leader in Israel! For you have proved your worthiness, and you shall carry with you the approval of the Heavenly Court. But before you go, permit me to hold this wonderful etrog of yours, and praise G-d with it." •
