Leonard Sweet's FB Postings

" 'You are righteous, O Lord; I cannot disagree; yet let me talk with You of Your judgments' Jer. 12:1. God is always right; but we can argue."

Then a follow up comment with a quotation:

" 'Levi-Yitzhak of Berditchev, who told God that unless he began to answer his prayers, he would refuse to say them any more. He warned God that if he did not improve, then God would be in for a tough time at the Last Judgment! And when people criticized him for ‘impious’ words, he said that, as a child of Israel, one may say anything.' Elie Wiesel, Souls on Fire, 111."

This may be part of the answer to my question: "Why were/are so many great comedians Jewish?"
