Storyboard Text

  • "Gazlin! It's freezing cold and Sara got to get a warm coat for the winter. She's already a young lady. She can't wear a shawl any more. Suppose you stop for a while to do charity with the tenth of her wages and let her have her own money for the clothes she needs to go to work" Pg. 89.
  • Stop wasting Sara's money on charity
  • No
  • "Woman! Stop my charities! It's like stopping the breath of God in me. It says in the Holy Torah, 'No man is too poor to help those that are poorer than himself.' Can I shut my heart to the cry of those starving Russians when they send me those begging letters for help?" Pg. 90.
  • You're crazy
  • God is life
  • "So with the blood money of your children's wages, you got to feed the starving Russians, thousands of miles away" Pg. 90.
  • Your own children are starving, why feed other children?
  • Mrs. Smolinsky is telling Reb Smolinsky that he needs to stop donating Sara's money to charity for a while because it's getting cold outside and Sara needs new clothes for the winter and work.
  • "Woman! I ask you by your conscience, who shall help the poor if not the poor?" Pg. 90.
  • Well too bad, we have to
  • Reb Smolinsky freaks out because his charities are connected to him by God. Stopping them would make him lose his connection with God and that is why he does not want to do so. Also, he can't ignore the help of others and he claims that the Torah says no one is poor enough to help poorer people. His family is really poor but he is in denial of how poor they are.
  • "Nu, if you got to feed the starving Russians, then stop at least to give away so much money on so many societies and lodges" Pg. 90.
  • Mrs. Smolinsky means that why does Reb have to feed children who are thousands miles away when his own children are starving. And he uses his own starving children's money to feed other kids who live across the world.
  • "Those societies I belong to are more to me than my life. I'm not living for myself. I have to go among people. Would you want me to stop my dues to the Convalescent Home that takes care of the poor sick from hospitals?..." Pg.90.
  • I'm getting my own job... finally
  • Reb asks Mrs. Smolinsky who should help the poor people if not the poor because rich people apparently help the rich. They don't all help each other. They help their own class.
  • We're too poor to help the poor
  • Mrs. Smolinksy begs Reb to at least give up some organizations so they could save at least some money for Sara's winter clothes.
  • Reb goes off saying his charities are what makes up his life and how he doesn't live for himself, he lives for other people. He also asks Mrs. Smolinsky if he should stop all these organizations who help all the poor, sick, and helpless people, making Mrs. Smolinsky feel bad.
