Once, the Rebbe was walking in the street and he saw the director of the Jewish school checking out a school bus that was for sale. When the Rebbe asked him why he was looking at it, the director answered he wants to buy it, since, thank G-d, there are many students in the school and they need another school bus.

When the Rebbe asked him “Why don’t you buy a better and newer school bus? This one is very old and not in the best condition”, the director answered he does not have enough money.

What the Rebbe told him, I think, is a great lesson for all of us: “Everything is according to your standards. If you are think an old school bus is sufficient, then you will not have enough money for something better. If you considered that a good school bus is essential for the student’s wellbeing, then you would find the needed funds”.

We need not be satisfied with the small, the little, the old but put ourselves high standards and goals and reach for them.

Shabbat Shalom,

Arie from the Yeshiva
