This story circulated in 2007, when a non-religious passenger on an EGED bus was angry at the traffic that the chareidim are causing once again. The driver explained that this time it’s different. “Now it’s for a good reason. Some chareidim have closed off 4 streets while they are distributing free Pesach food for poor families,” said the driver. The passenger disembarked from the bus. He had to see it for himself. He was overcome at the sheer magnitude of the operation. He watched as young and old lugged cases of food down the streets. Upon his return home, he immediately visited the Rabbi of his town and told him that he wants to begin keeping Shabbos. He wants to feel part of this blessed nation.
In your zechus, I can feel like a free man all year long.”
