by Anonymous

There’s a story told about a great pious Rabbi who was becoming deaf in his old age. His students could not understand “why is this happening to you, a man who has spent his whole life studying and teaching the Holy Torah”. They felt that  Zechus should protect him from ailment.  “What can I say… I sinned in my youth and now Hashem is helping me atone for those mistakes”.
