Our worker, Sergey, met with Sam* for dessert and coffee. Sam* refused dessert since he doubted if it was really kosher, but he did agree to have a cup of coffee. Over coffee he brought up the intricacies of kashrut (kosher). After discussing all the “technical” matters, Sam talked about the dishonesty of some rabbis who are responsible for approving kosher food. From there the conversation developed unexpectedly; Sam said that someone else’s dishonesty is not what matters because every person should be responsible for himself. He even confessed that if his life is judged according to the Torah, he will be guilty before God. Sergey used this as an opportunity to talk about faith, God’s mercy and the Messiah! The conversation with Sam was brief since he was working, but he stayed in touch with Sergey.
