Packed Like Sardines
Rabbi Epstein made an effort to meet with all of his congregants and one day he was having lunch at Izzy’s Restaurant with Chaim Yankel, a congregant who was a little…different.
Rabbi Epstein ordered a pastrami sandwich, and Chaim Yankel ordered sardines. Struggling for conversation topics, Rabbi Epstein said, "You know Chaim Yankel, those little sardines, are sometimes eaten by the larger fish."
Chaim Yankel gazed at the sardines in wonder, and then asked, "But, rabbi, how do the large fish get the cans open?"
