THE DEFINITION OF CHUTZPAH A little old Jewish lady sold pretzels on a street corner for 25 cents each. Every day a young man would leave his office building at lunch time, and as he passed the pretzel stand, he would leave her a quarter, but never take a pretzel. And this went on for more then 3 years. The two of them never spoke. One day, as the young man passed the old lady's stand and left his quarter as usual, the pretzel lady spoke to him. "Sir, I appreciate your business. You are a good customer, but I have to tell you that the pretzel price has gone up to 35 cents."

Follow Kids on the Block - STORY of Rebbe


Several Bar-Mitzva age boys stopped attending Hebrew school. A concerned shliach took the teenagers to visit the Rebbe, hoping the Rebbe would convince them to continue seeking a Jewish education.
“Tell me,” the Rebbe asked the first boy, “why have you decided to stop attending Hebrew school?”
“All the other boys on my block have stopped going to Hebrew school, so I want to stop as well,” he answered.
“And what about you?” the Rebbe asked the second boy.
“Same reason,” the boy explained, “the kids on my block don’t go, so why should I?”
“Tell me,” the Rebbe asked the boys, “who were your favorite Jewish heroes that you learned about?”
One boy responded that he deeply admired Noah, and the other, Abraham.
“Do you know,” the Rebbe told the first boy, “that if Noah would have followed all the other kids on his block, we would have no world? And if Abraham would have followed all the kids on his block,” the Rebbe told the second boy, “we would have no Jewish people!”

Talmud - Dont make a Woman Cry

'Be very careful if you make a woman cry, because G-d counts her tears. The woman came out of a man's rib. Not from his feet to be walked on. Not from his head to be superior, but from the side to be equal. under the arm to be protected, and next to the heart to be loved'
-Bava Metzia 59:A
