This teenager is visiting Israel from America. He was listening to me put tefillin on another boy. When I finished I asked him if he had put on tefillin that day. He said that he never had put on tefillin before. I brought him over explained what tefillin are and why we put them on. As always, I told him why it was so important for him to marry only a Jewish girl and we took some pictures. As you can see from the picture, he had a good time.
Does it have any lasting effect? Last Shabbos I had a couple in their mid-thirties for dinner. She was expecting their first child. He told me that the last time he was at my house was 16 years ago and that he married a Jewish girl because of what I told him.
Look at this boy's face. Not only do I have the opportunity to make sure there are lots of Jewish babies in the world, I also get to see such loving faces as his. This has to be the best job in the world. I love it!
