That’s my seat!

When Bnei Yisrael camped in the desert, they did so in a tight and specific formation.  No one complained about their place and no one attempted to change their position in the total configuration.  We, too, should emulate this quality of our ancestors and not quarrel about where we sit in shul or who has a more honorable and respectable place.  It is not the seat that brings a man honor, but the man who brings honor to the seat. ~ R’ Zalman Sorotzkin zt”l (Oznaim L’Torah) from Torah Tavlin
