Who will pray for us?


In the neighborhood of Rabbi Zeira there lived some sinful Jews. He reached out to them and befriended them in the hope that they would repent their ways. This did not find favor with some of the other sages. When Rabbi Zeira passed away these sinners were distraught. Until now, they cried, Rabbi Zeira prayed to Heaven in our behalf but who will do so now? They took this so much to heart that they became ba'alei teshuva.




בשכונתו של רב זירא היו בריונים הללו.

והיה רב זירא מקרבם כדי שיחזרו בתשובה.

הקפידו חכמים.

כשמת רבי זירא אמרו הבריונים:

עד עכשיו היה קטינא חרוך שוקיים מבקש עלינו רחמים. עכשיו מי יבקש עלינו רחמים?

הרהרו בליבם ועשו תשובה
