A few years ago, frum Jews were doing their pre-Pesach shopping in a prominent Brooklyn grocery store. Yidden were dismayed to overhear two non-frum shoppers who were using choice words to describe orthodox Jews and their shopping habits. Shortly thereafter, these women’s loaded wagon overturned and all of the “nasty” orthodox Jewish strangers stopped what they were doing and helped them reload their wagon.
This month, we will be shopping in crowded stores. It would be great to be sensitive to other shoppers by giving them personal space, allowing them to make their purchases without interrupting, and keeping our own places in line.
