Sometimes it is just the small acts of kindness that can make someone’s day – or weekend.
A Lakewood resident tells TLS he was loading his car trunk Friday afternoon in the Gourmet Glatt parking lot when he was approached by a stranger who proceeded to place a large Cookie Corner package alongside his groceries.
Asked what this was all about, the man, who refused to give his name, simply said that “this is for you L’Kavod Shabbos.
He explained that during COVID he heard from Ira Zlotowitz that if you want to buy something L’kovod Shabbos, then you should buy it for someone else, which shows that it’s really L’shma.
The package, which contained about $50 worth of assorted pastries, had a note which said “Dear stranger, Have a wonderful Shabbos.”
