Have a Cow

July 3, 2014 | by Aish.com

Rabbi Emanuel, the Beth David Hebrew school teacher, is telling his class the story of the Prophet Elijah and the false prophets of Baal. He explains to his class how Elijah built the altar; put wood upon it; cut the cow in pieces and laid it upon the altar. Then how Elijah commanded the Jewish people to fill four barrels of water and pour it over the altar; and to do this four times.

Emanuel then asks his class, "Now can anyone here tell me why Hashem wanted Elijah to pour water over the cow on the altar?"

Rebecca, a little girl at the back of the classroom starts waving her hand, "I know Rabbi, I know," she shouts out. "It's to make the gravy."
