The Sweet Hereafter
Rabbi Saltzman made it a habit of visiting his congregants at home, especially his elder members. On one such visit to Morty Rubenstein he asked, “Mr. Rubenstein, do you have thoughts of what comes next…Olam Haba?”
“What do you mean?” asked Mr. Rubenstein.
“You know, the afterlife, the hereafter,” said Rabbi Saltzman.
"Oh, I do all the time,” said Mr. Rubenstein. “No matter where I am – in the parlor, upstairs, in the kitchen, or down in the basement – I ask myself, 'Now, what am I here after?'"
