An Offer You Can Refuse
Avi is a Jerusalem cab driver who has a regular passenger whom he refers to as his "special mitzvah". Almost every day he transports a totally blind youngster from his home in Tel Aviv to a special school for the sightless in Jerusalem.
A very special relationship has developed between the youngster and the cabbie who treats him like his own child.
One day Avi had a rich tourist for a passenger who was so impressed with the kindness shown by the cabbie that he made him an offer he was sure could not be refused.
"I have $10,000 here in my pocket," he said, "which I am prepared to give you if you sell me the merit of your mitzvah in dealing with this child."
To his surprise Avi, a non-observant Jew with a Jewish heart, informed him that for even a million dollars he would not give up the merit of this mitzvah, which he saw as his passport to Gan Eden.
