🔝 Today’s Featured Story
One day, Dan Kravitz, a furniture store owner from Colorado, got a phone call from a man looking to purchase a black lacquer bedroom set. He wanted to stick to a budget of 700 dollars. Dan warmly invited the man to come into his store, and said he’d be glad to work with him.
Shortly after that phone call, a young man walked into Dan’s store with gruesome tattoos reading ‘Kill all Jews’ emblazoned on both arms. Dan was shocked. Nevertheless, he helped the young man find the furniture he was looking for, and even gave him a discount, knowing that he needed to stay within budget.
Just before the man left, Dan questioned him about his tattoos. ‘You don’t believe all that, do you?’ The man enthusiastically said that he did, that he’d done a lot of bad things to Jews and people of color, and that Jews were liars and thieves.
At that point, Dan decided to take off his cap and reveal his kippah (skullcap) underneath.
‘Well, I’m Jewish,’ he replied.
