The Jew Saved by a Cholent Egg
The Ben Ish Chai once told a story about a Jew who wanted to convert to Islam. But before he converted, he was required by law to meet with a rabbi.
The rabbi asked him, “Do you like your mother’s Cholent?”
The young man, not understanding the point of the question, said yes.
“You should know that if you leave Judaism, you will never ever taste a cholent egg like you eat in your mother’s house with that special taste of Shabbat.”
And that Jew decided to stay a Jew.
