The Check Came

Mr. R was very close friend of Rabbi Kramer. During his lifetime, he donated thousands of dollars to the Yeshiva, and decided to leave over $10,000 to the Yeshiva in his will. Unfortunately, after his passing, due to many internal family issues, the money was not given over to the Yeshiva. Rabbi Kramer had two choices: either he could go to court and claim the money, or he could wait and see what happens.

Due to Rabbi Kramer’s innate peace-loving and kind personality (אוהב שלום ורודף שלום), he chose the latter. He waited patiently for the matter to resolve. To everybody’s surprise, some fifteen years after the story took place and ten years after Rabbi Kramer’s passing, the $10,000 check arrived at the Yeshiva!
