Only at the Kotel would you see a scene like this: The Jew with tefillin is an avowed atheist from Sweden, and the black man is a ch-ristian preacher from Georgia, USA. The preacher was trying to convince the atheist that G-d really does exist, and the Jew was arguing his head off against him!
You might ask, “Why in the world would an atheist put on tefillin?” Well… Gutman had something to do with it. I convinced him by telling him that he could help a lot of Jews by doing it. Oh -- and I had to pull a little, too.
The preacher couldn’t budge the guy, not in the least, and he finally gave up. He looked at me apologetically and said, “Well, I tried.”
I love it. What a crazy world we live in!
