Bricks and Mortar

December 10, 2017 | by Aish.com

Rabbi Schwartz was walking down the street when he saw a young man doing some taxing manual labour on the side of his house – it looked as though he was moving a pile of bricks that had fallen.

"You look tired, son," said Rabbi Schwartz. "Why don't you rest a moment, and I'll give you a hand."

"No thanks," said the young man. "My father wouldn't approve."

"Don't be silly," the Rabbi said. "Everyone is entitled to a break. Come and have a drink of water."

Again the young man protested that his father would be upset.

Losing his patience just a little, Rabbi Schwartz said, "Your father must be a real slave driver. Tell me where I can find him and I'll give him a piece of my mind!"

"Well," replied the young man, "you can tell him whatever you like just as soon as I get these bricks off him."
