  1. A wonderful Kiddush Hashem. Thank you, Joel. By being thouhtful of Hashem,Joel was thoughtful of others. Thank you. Y. Kasnett

  2. If only people would realize that everywhere we go we are being analyzedfrom top to bottom and spreading matzah and crumbs everywhere doesn’t impress. Good job “Joel”

  3. We should publish more stories like these. This happened at Finnigans Lanes in Lakewood. I take my family there every Chol Hamoed !

  4. We all know in how many ways we are the most giving and caring nation on planet earth. The problem is that we are judged just by a few things that are seen in public so everything else doesn’t matter.
    1. Driving / parking
    2. Holding the door open for someone ( although in most cases it’s nonsense )
    3. Saying hello ( Not ignoring) in a waiting room….

    Joel, You’re a great guy. you and I both know you’re just average.
    Kudis to the gentleman who publicized his experience.

  5. Thanks Joel, Baruch Hashem most of us make sure to act like Joel. We are a great nation and we generally have great Middos.

    But I’d like to ask those that haven’t acted like “Joel” to please start acting like him “Now”. I went to Pennsylvania last summer and even though all of our “brothers & sisters” were acting so nicely, there was one family that had to mess it up for everybody. The parents weren’t watching their kids and they were climbing all over the place annoying everybody else. I was so embarrassed, what a shame this family had to ruin our reputation and not let us make a kiddush hashem.

    Please try to remember that there are other people and they might not be used to our culture. So try making an effort not to annoy them.
