More than the Jews have kept the Sabbath, the Sabbath has kept the Jews
Uncle Joe and Grandpa Ralph co-owned a hardware business for 60 years. Over the years, they participated in many trade shows. A popular venue was Cologne, Germany, home of the fourth largest exhibition center in the world.
During one of the shows in Cologne, Grandpa closed his booth on Friday afternoon, posting a sign saying that the booth would re-open on Sunday morning. When he returned on Sunday, he found this card at his booth.
When I asked Karen to photograph the card for me yesterday, I was able to tell her exactly where to find it, as Grandpa treasured it and had shown it to me a number of times.
The significance of the story occurring in Germany was lost to no one.
