The other townspeople saw this and inquired: "Why are you bothering – he's no great rabbi!

" To which the man replied, "A human being is a human being.

And we must honor him just the same." Five major catastrophes occurred in Jewish history on the 17th of Tammuz: (1) Moses broke the tablets at Mount Sinai, in response to the building of the Golden Calf.

In identifying the Godliness within each person, we not only honor the individual, but bring more of God's presence into the world as well.

Consider the following story, which occurred about 100 years ago in Europe: One day, a man reported that a great rabbi was walking down the road, heading into town for an unexpected visit. Word spread quickly, and all the townspeople hurried to dress in their finest Shabbos clothes, in order to great the rabbi with great honor and respect.

Soon after, however, it was discovered that the original report was mistaken, and the man thought to be a great rabbi was in fact just an ordinary traveler.

So all the townspeople went back to their activities, leaving the traveler to fend for himself. He went out to greet the stranger grandly, and invited him to be the guest of honor at a lavish meal.
