Humble Beginnings Recalled

Editor, The Jewish News:
A wealthy widow, whose
deceased husband had been
a close friend of mine,
brought along her top busi-
ness executive to dine with
us. In the course of conver-
sation I brought up the fact
that when she and I were
children we played together
in the slums of St. Louis.
The following day, over
the telephone, she repri-
manded me for referring to
her childhood and extracted
a promise from me that
never again would I men-
tion her impoverished
background.
On the other hand, I re-
call the time I had dinner at
the home of Barney Bala-
ban, head of Paramount
Films. This man of wealth
has spend a fortune buying
papers that have great
value and importance to our
government. Then he pre-
sents them as gifts to the
country he is so proud to
serve. The original manu-
script of the Star Spangled
Banner by Francis Scott
Key is one of the items he
purchased.
I saw copies of the var-
ious items he gave to the
United States of America.
In the same beautiful li-
brary he proudly shows
the pictures of his Or-
thodox Jewish - parents
and the place of his birth
... the second floor of a
wooden shack, the
ground floor of which
served as the family
grocery store. This was in
the heart of Chicago's
ghetto.
The mature and inte-
grated man is proud of his
humble origin and wants
always to be reminded of it,
as in the story of King
David.
It is said that visiting
dignitaries visiting King
David invariably asked,
"Why is it that all over the
world palaces are repos-
itories for trophies won in

battle, beautiful jewels,
colorful tapestries and other
rare phenomena? Your
Majesty's walls are adorned
only with rams' horns."
King David's simple reply
was, "As I sit on my throne,
high above the populace, it
is easy for me to have my
ego inflated. That is why
wherever I cast my eyes I
want to see rams' horns to
remind me that I was once a
shepherd."
The smaller the person,
the bigger the ego; the big-
ger the person, the more
humble and grateful he is.
Rabbi Rubin Dobin
