Finding the Postive in a Traffic Jam

Guest Post by
Elchanan Lipshitz Efrat, Israel

Another bus story, this time on a dreary, cold, wet winter late afternoon having returned to Yerushalayim from a tiyul out of the city. Traffic is bumper-to-bumper and we're stuck near City Hall with no end to the traffic jam in sight.

People are becoming antsy and impatient and the mumbling gets louder and louder. Finally the tour guide takes the microphone and says: 

"Ladies and Gentlemen- 
When the Ramban visited Yerushalayim he couldn't find a Minyan of Jews! 
Think how happy the Ramban would be to be struck in a traffic jam in Yerushalayim!!"

Needless to say, the mumbling and grumbling came to an immediate stop!! (I quote this story often whenever people complain about things- not only traffic- in Yerushalayim/Israel.
