Be True to Yourself

A great Rabbi died. He had been revered and loved by his congregation.  After his death, it was decided that the Rabbi’s son, himself a Rabbi, would take his father’s place. This pleased the congregation, for the son would be “just like his father.” But after some time, there was surprise and grumbling. The son gave himself fully, heart and soul, to the synagogue, and began to make changes that displeased some of the people.  “You are not at all like your father,” they told him, obviously disappointed.  “Oh, but I am,” he replied. “For my father was one of a kind. He imitated no one. Neither do I.”
