One shabbas morning, Rabbi Levy notices seven year old David staring up at the large plaque hanging in the shul foyer. It was covered with names and small American flags were mounted on either side of it. David has been staring at the plaque for some time, so Rabbi Levy walks over to him and says quietly, “Good shabbes, David.”
“Good shabbes, Rabbi,” replies David, still focusing on the plaque. “Rabbi, what is this?” David then asks.
“Well, David,” replies Rabbi Levy, “it’s a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service.”
Soberly, they stand together, staring at the large plaque. Then little David’s voice is barely audible as he asks, “Which one, the Friday night or the Saturday service?”
