Positive Thinking – by Rabbi Danny Kirsch

When R Dov Ber of Metzritch was eight years old, there was a fire in his town, in which his home was consumed. His mother was inconsolable.
“Why are you crying so much?” asked the child. “Should one cry because a house burns down?”
“No, my son,” she replied, ” I am not crying for the house, but for the document bearing our family tree which was in it, and which went back to R Yochanan HaSandlar.”
“Don’t wory, Mother,” replied the child. “I will be the start of a new family tree.”

These daily lifts are inspired by Jonny Chippeck and dedicated to his ‘refuah shleimah’. Get well soon Jonny!

Please step up to the plate and contribute your own small nugget of Torah by sending back to me at terence@speedquote.net. The more people we have contributing, the higher this daily lift will go. Keep them coming.
