Every Jew is a Jewel!
One time, a Chasid visited his Rebbe. He saw that the Rebbe spoke with scholars, rabbis, and community leaders, but he gave special attention to simple Jews. When it was his turn to talk to with the Rebbe, the Chasid couldn't restrain himself from asking, "Why did you spend so much time with those simple Jews?"
The Rebbe didn't answer the question. Instead he said to the Chasid, "Tell me about your work."
The Chasid explained that he bought and sold gems.
"Do you have any gems to show me?" the Rebbe asked.
The Chasid took out a small velvet bag and poured the gems into his hand. Then he took the Rebbe to the window so he could see the beautiful stones in the light. "This one is unique." the Chasid said choosing one gem. "Its cut and clarity are truly exceptional!"
"I don't see what is so unique." the Rebbe commented.
"I guess you have to be an expert to appreciate them," the Chasid answered.
"The same is true with the Jewish people!" the Rebbe replied. "You have to be an expert to know how special each person really is!"
