A Little Jewish Boy

A Little Jewish Boy

 

     I was sitting by the Kotel waiting for maariv (evening prayers). This cute little boy was standing some 15 feet away. I smiled at him and waved my fingers a little to say hello. He looked at me for a moment and then suddenly ran over to me. I wondered what he was doing. He bent over and gently kissed the back of my hand. Small children learn their ways from their parents. We grow with the values that we see when we are young. This little boy is leaning to respect his elders and will listen to their advice instead of only what the television teaches. If there were no other benefit than this, it would worth the energy it takes to keep a Torah observant home.

  1. The word "be" is missing in the last sentence: It would BE worth the effort...Please correct, thanks!
