Neglecting The Shul


JewishPress Logo

The following morning, when the people came to the Beis Medrash they saw the Chofetz Chaim still learning. One of the rabbanim approached him and asked, “Why did you stay up the entire night? It must have been a most inter­esting Gemara you were learning,”

The Chofetz Chaim looked up at him and said in a plaintive voice, “What could I do? This old person had his head on my cloak all night and I didn’t want to disturb him by standing up and awaken­ing him.”

Rabbi Sholom Klass
