Chaim was the kindest, gentlest, most generous and faithful man
the shtetl had ever known, despite the fact that he wasn't very
bright. Because of his tzedaka, however, his counsel was often
sought. One day the people asked him, "Which is more
important -- the sun, or the moon?"
He thought for a moment, then replied, "The moon is more important
than the sun."
"Why would you say that?" they asked.
"Because it shines at night when we need it the most."
