The Manchester Rosh Yeshiva Dances A Daring Dance
It was a cold snowy night in Manchester which made walking outside very difficult.  The aging Manchester Rosh Yeshiva Rav Yehuda Zev Segal was outside on his way home when a car pulled up to drive him.

The driver told the Rosh Yeshiva that his wife had just given birth to a baby girl.  The Rosh Yeshiva wished him a Mazal Tov and asked him how the mother and baby were doing.  He said that they were both Boruch Hashem doing very well.

When the car stopped the Rosh Yeshiva got out into the snow covered street and started dancing with the father in the most unpleasant and unsafe conditions.  The father asked the Rosh Yeshiva why he was endangering himself and dancing on the slippery street.  The Rosh Yeshiva answered that whenever he hears that a mother and child are healthy after childbirth he is so consumed with Simcha and Shevach for Hashem that he needs to dance.  And dance he did!
