Money, money...

Rabbi Shmuel from Karov did not hold wealth in high regard. This obviously upset the local fat cats. One of them even cited words of the Sages:

- It’s written “tithe to the poor and you will be rich”. If even the Sages talk about wealth as a reward sent by G-d for good deeds, it must mean that riches is a good thing!

- Manure is also a good thing, very useful, answered Rabbi Shmuel, but very few like it under their windows.
