Zeidy’s on a Diet!

Rabbi Nachman Zakon

Zeidy, you look so much better since the last time we saw you! That’s right. Ever since Bubby put me on a health food diet I feel great. I have more kochos to serve Hashem, and to take you kids on trips. I don’t even mind having a meatless, sweet potato and wheat germ cholent.
