Fruitful Chaim Yankel
Chaim Yankel and his wife Rivkah were firm believers in the commandment to “be fruitful and multiply”. After only 10 years of marriage he already had 8 kids. When Chaim Yankel was forced to move because of his job he was having a very hard time finding an apartment where the landlord would be willing to rent to such a big family.
Finally after being turned down one time too many Chaim Yankel had an idea. “Rivkah” said Chaim Yankel to his wife, “go with the six little kids to the cemetery while I go see this apartment.”
Later that day while checking out an apartment the landlord asked, “How many children do you have?” “I have 8 children,” Chaim Yankel truthfully replied, “but 6 of them are with their mother in the cemetery.”
