Hope you’re having a great day!
… This is a follow up to the last Torah Minute.
We spoke about how we need to do kindness with truth.
To make sure that it doesn’t just make us feel good.
But that it really helps the other person.
And I told you about the yeshiva high school boy.
How he knew just the right way to engage the two boys with special needs.
… After seeing what the boy did?
I realized that an opportunity came my way.
A chance for an act of kindness that never fails.
The first step was to find out the boy’s name.
Call his mother!
…”Hi. This is Moshe Katz. You don’t know me.
But do you mind if I give you some nachas?”
(It means pleasure. But it’s a very poor translation!)
The mother says, “Please. Give me some nachas!”
I told her what her son did. How impressed I was.
And how refreshing it is to see a kid like that these days!
She thanked me profusely and said that I made her day.
And she was crying!
… As I said in the last Torah Minute.
Sometimes the best way to do kindness is not so obvious.
But when you see a kid do something special?
It is obvious.
Tell the mother!
She will believe it. She will probably cry.
And you will have done something G-dly!
All the best,
