Trouble for Rabbi

 

Once Rabbi was teaching and there was the odor of garlic. He said, “Whoever ate garlic must leave!” Rabbi Hiyya stood and left. Everyone stood up and left. In the morning, Rabbi Shimon the son of Rabbi found him and said, “Are you the one who caused tsurus for my father?” He replied, “Let there not be such in all of Israel!”  (B. Sanhedrin 11.)
