On the  morning of Rosh Hashanah as the congregation was filing into the Synagogue, Rabbi Liebenberg noticed little Max standing in the foyer of the
Synagogue staring up at a large plaque. It was covered with names with small
 flags mounted on either side of it. The six-year old had been
Staring at the plaque for some time, so the rabbi walked up, stood beside 
he little boy, and said quietly, 'Boker Tov, Max.  'Boker Tov, Rabbi
Liebenberg,' he replied,  still focused on the plaque. ' Rabbi Liebenberg, what is
his?' he said, pointing to the plaque.  

The good Rabbi tenderly put his arm around Max's shoulder and said, ' Well
on, it's a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service.
Soberly, they just stood together, staring at the large plaque.

Finally, little Max , in a voice barely audible and trembling with fear


'Which service, Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur?'
