One winter evening a young man who was recently released from jail came into Kollel (in it's old location on Union St. behind 770) asking for money, he announced that he was now out and was going to do things straight from now on.
Levi, although he himself said that he did not have cash on him, announced in his loud, deep voice "come on guys -help him out".
It is this story that i remember when i learn the words of Chazal "גדול המעשה יותר מן העושה" -"greater is the causer of action than he who actually acts".
These loud words of his moved almost all in the room to give him lot's of money.
