The chassidim waited for their rebbe to enter the shul. But he stood at the door.

"I cannot enter the shul because it is full of prayers and Torah."

The chassidim were confused. A shul should be full of prayers.

"The Torah and prayers which are genereted here remain here instead of ascending to heaven. Were they spoken with conviction and fervor they would not still be here.

- from The Baal Shem Tov p. 117 by Yisroel Yaakov Klapholtz 1971 Mishor Publishing
