…In His Wisdom In His Judgement In His…

wisdom in his judgement April 21 1915

Two thoughts nag me as I read this account from the April 21, 1915 edition of The Chatham Record:

  1. One little “to” would have prevented any confusion (and ruined the story): “Give my wife as much as you want [to] and keep the remainder for yourself.”
  2. This story makes my brain hurt; the rabbi’s judgment sets up a Möbius loop in my mind. One way out of that conundrum would be to split the money evenly, but who wants to do that?
