5 Wars Without a Tear

Chassidut talks of the "spark" inside every Jew. This story provides an example where it ignites its expression.

“I've Been Through Five Wars”

Two weeks ago, Gutman Locks put tefillin on a career officer from the United States Air Force. He showed him how to pray for his family and thank G-d for all the good he was given. Gutman then escorted him to the Kotel. Some 10 minutes later the fellow returned and said, “I have been through 5 wars and I never shed a single tear. I walked up to the Kotel and I started crying.”

Gutman asked, “Why were you crying?”
The guy said, “Love”.
