HOW TO STOP SHUL GOSSIP Chana, self-appointed monitor of the Shul's morals (Yenta), kept sticking her nose in to other people's business. Several members did not approve of her extra curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence. She made a mistake, however, when she accused Moishe, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his car parked in front of the town's only bar one afternoon. She emphatically told Moishe (and several others) that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing. Moishe, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny... he said nothing. Later that evening, Moishe quietly parked his car in front of Chana's house...walked home...and left it there all night!!! You gotta love Moishe!
