Rabbi Perl shares his personal Super Bowl Ad.

The Scene:

The Rebbe blesses a Bar Mitzvah boy that he should grow to become a source of pride to the Jewish people and to his family. As he turns to leave, Rebbe addresses to the youngster: "Are you a football fan?"

The Bar-Mitzvah boy replied that he is. "Which team are you a fan of -- the Denver Broncos or the Seattle Seahawks?"

The Denver Broncos, replies the boy. “Tell me if your team was losing what would you do? “I made a decision in advance to leave, if this was happening.”

"Do you think your favorite team players would so also leave the game when you leave?"

Rabbi, the players can't leave in the middle of the game! "Why not?" asked the Rebbe. "Explain to me how this works."

There are players and fans, the football fan explained. The fans can leave when they like -- they're not part of the game and the game could, and does, continue after they leave. But the players need to stay and try to win until the game is over.

"That is the lesson I want to teach you in Judaism," said the Rebbe with a smile. "You can be either a fan or a player in the arena of life. Be a player, we all need you."
