Penny’s Tips Volume 49

Hi everyone! The Jewish day of atonement, Yom Kippur begins at sundown so I thought I would tell you a Jewish story. Don’t worry , there is a penny in it.

It is titled, The Rusty Penny by Tuvia Bolton .Many years ago ( the 17 or 1800’s), a rabbi was collecting money to help some Jewish prisoners. He went around with a group and asked everyone to donate. He went to a so-called miser’s home and asked him for a donation. The man gave him a rusty old penny which was considered an insult, but he accepted it and said thank you. A few minutes later, the miser offered him a lot more money which he also graciously accepted. Then the miser offered the entire amount needed. The rabbi later explained the man was not a miser, he had just never had the joy of giving because everyone else threw the rusty penny back in his face.

I may not have explained it that well, you can read the story by clicking here.

The point is, it is good to give and once you do, you will always want to. I am sure that is true, but I am s till not giving away the Kick Stick.
