Two Brothers

at the Western Wall with Reb Gutman Locks


    These brothers are from America. The one on the right is a very nice young man who works as a comedian telling off-colored jokes. The younger one has made aliyah (became an Israeli citizen and moved to Israel), is serving in the army, and plans to live all of his life in Israel.

    They come from the same place, have the same genes, were raised in the same house, but what fills one brother’s life doesn’t even enter his brother’s life… this one’s concerns do not concern that one, not at all… they do not share hopes, dreams, moments…what makes one brother happy is not what the other brother is looking for…what entirely different lives they are living.

Well thank G-d they are both putting on tefillin together. I don't know how many people will be laughing at the jokes of the comedian if Obama is re-elected. If Romney wins, the party might continue in America for a while until the inevitable attack on Iran comes due. So until then let's yuck it up and laugh at his jokes for the next 3 weeks.
