Building synagogues vs. Saving lives


"Rabbi Chama bar Rabbi Chanina and Rabbi Hoshia were walking among the synagogues of Lod. Rabbi Chama bar Rabbi Chanina commented to Rabbi Hoshia in admiration, 'How much money my ancestors sunk in here!'

"To which Rabbi Hoshia replied, 'How many lives your ancestors sunk in here! Weren't there people to support in the study of Torah?'"

(Talmud Yerushalmi, Peah 8:8)

Have a great day,
