A Nassrudinish Hassidic story
- A Rabbi named Zusya died and went to stand before the judgment seat
of God. As he waited for God to appear, he grew nervous thinking
about his life and how little he had done. He began to imagine that
God was going to ask him, "Why weren't you Moses or why weren't you
Solomon or why weren't you David?"
But when God appeared, the Rabbi was surprised.
God simply asked, "Why weren't you Zusya?"
