‘Why Doesn’t The Rabbi Act Like A Rabbi?’

A Mexican lady at a shul I often attend asked a friend of mine on Shabbos, "Why doesn’t the rabbi [me] go upfront and act like a rabbi?"

He told her that I wasn’t really a rabbi.

He should’ve told her that I was a hidden tzaddik and that I carried on my mission through my eyes. Just look in them to see the light.

Derelicts, Mexicans, and non-Orthodox Jews often call me rabbi.
