A story About Schuster’s Hall

One thing the Washington Heights community was known for in its years as a mega-kehilla was the devotion of its members to the annual dinner and the fundraising journal.
Mr. Schuster who donated the hall to the kehilla had a big business in New Jersey. The time came that he sold the business to a gentile businessman. As they are closing on the deal and they are done signing the paperwork, Mr. Schuster turns to the buyer and says, “ I want to tell you about the school I support in Washington Heights…”. Before he can finishing soliciting the ad, the businessman interrupts him, “ You have all my money now, you place the ad!”
I will assume my father heard this story from Jerry, and it  shows the allegiance to the Yeshiva of a generation!
