Inspiring Words

As Leah and Isaac are walking back home after the shabbos service, Leah says, "Do you know darling, I think Rabbi Bloom today made one of the best sermons I've heard for years. He's really inspired me."

"I agree with you there, Leah," says Isaac. "He's very good. In fact, I think he would really appreciate someone saying something positive about him for a change. So as you like his sermons so much, why don't you shmooze him a bit next shabbos and tell him how much you enjoy his sermons?"

"I might just do that," says Leah.

Next shabbos, as soon as the service finishes, Leah goes over to Rabbi Bloom.

"Good shabbos rabbi," she says. "I want to tell you just how much I enjoy all your sermons. They're wonderful works of inspiration. They're so good in fact, that I think you should have them published. What an inspirational book that would be."

"Why thank you Leah," says Rabbi Bloom. "I'm very flattered. But there are many rabbis whose sermons are much, much better than mine are."

"I cannot believe that, rabbi," says Leah.

"Well if they're really as good as you think," says Rabbi Bloom thinking aloud, "maybe my sermons should be published posthumously."

"Great!" says Leah. "What a good idea, rabbi. I look forward to getting a copy of your book."
