Password to Jewish Discovery

Friday, 22 November, 2013 - 1:57 pm

It started as an ordinary phone call to an office, inquiring about an account, but it ended on a very different note.

Chani was trying to access her account on the Government website for the monthly Daycare Support but - very surprisingly - her password was rejected time and again, so she got on the phone with the office.

When one answer to the security question didn't match what they had an the record, Chani realized that the account was created by the secretary in the office who gave her own answers...  Then came another question "which historical figure do you admire?" she was asked. "Moses perhaps" was her guess. "You maybe right" the man said "we just have a different spelling - Moshe..."

"How do you know how to pronounce 'Moshe' correctly?" Chani wondered. "I heard it before" the man explained "because my mother is Jewish". "If your mother is Jewish - that makes you 100% Jewish too" Chani said to the now surprised person.

You can imagine that before the phone conversation ended - Chani had already connected the man with a Local Chabad Rabbi of his town...

Chani was happy to know there was a good reason for her password being rejected, and I was amazed by her ability to realize the opportunity in a very technical phone conversation...

A heartwarming story! Note that man was 'connected with his local Chabad Rabbi' which highlights the incredible presence of Chabad worldwide making a difference in Jewish lives every day.
Shabbat Shalom.
