Chronicles Of Crises In Our Communities

By:

“When you publicly desecrated the Shabbos for the first time, your father aged overnight and seemed to be constantly in mourning. Your mother would shed a river of tears every Friday night when she lit the candles. I often wondered what became of all her tears. I am not the most religious person, but I know that there is a G-d who runs the world, and I could not understand how the tears of so righteous a woman could be ignored in Heaven.

“Today my question has been answered. I see that her tears were not shed in vain. Today, almost fifty years later, her grandson has returned to the ways of his ancestors.

“Mr. Eitan, I am sure you recall on more than one occasion, friends of your parents pleading with you that for your parents’ sake you should at least refrain from public transgression. As I recall, your response was, ‘I am now eighteen and I make my own decisions. I can live my life any way that I please.’

“And you dare to file charges because your eighteen-year-old son has returned to the ways that you abandoned?? Case dismissed!”
