An elderly woman came before Rav Nachman and said to him, “The Resh Galuta and all of the rabbis of the house of the Resh Galuta are sitting in a stolen sukkah.” She screamed but Rav Nachman paid no attention to her. She said to him, “A woman whose father had 318 servants is screaming before you, and you don’t pay her any attention?” Rav Nachman said to them, “This woman is a crybaby and all that is due her is the value of the wood.” B Sukkah 3., Cf. Genesis 14:14
