I am Afraid


Studying Torah late one night in Kovna, R’ Yisroel Salanter overhead the conversation of two paupers who were lodging in a side room.  One asked the other to accompany him to the well, as he was afraid to go out alone so late at night.  The other drowsily mumbled a refusal.  Immediately, Rav Yisroel interrupted his own studies and went to the well to fetch water for the pauper. ~ R’ Zelig Pliskin
