A Tzaddik in a Fur Coat


There are two ways to get warm on a cold winter day:

a) Build a fire, which warms everyone else in the room as well; or

b) Wrap yourself in furs, which conserves your own warmth but does not generate any heat or warm anyone else.

Thus chassidim would say, “Don’t be a tzaddik in a fur coat!”
