One Shabbat morning, a mother went into the bedroom to wake her son and tell him it was time to get ready to go to the Shul, to which he replied: “I’m not going.” “Why not?” she asked. “I’ll give you two good reasons,” he said. “One, they don’t like me”, and “ two, I don’t like them.” His mother replied: “I’ll give YOU two good reasons why you MUST go to the Shul. “ONE, you’re 54 years old”, and  “TWO, you’re the Rabbi”

Lessons from a Pencil

A pencil maker told the pencil 5 important lessons:

1) Everything you do will always leave a mark.

2) You can always correct the mistakes you make.

3) What is important is what is inside of you.

4) In life, you will undergo painful sharpenings, which will make you a better person.

5) To be the best pencil, you must allow yourself to be held and guided by the hand that holds you.
