Beautiful Story!

This story moved me! Im Yirtzeh Hashem this will teach me a lesson in loyalty. This story was told very well, and brought a standing message. Yasher Koach.

Truly Powerful Life Lesson

I have heard this story at least 5 times. It doesn't get old. It gets better. Thank you Rav Noah.
