Three moving tales illustrate the wonder of the Jewish High Holidays. Repentance, Prayer, and Charity--these three concepts are at the heart of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. But how can we translate such abstract ideas into everyday life? Three beautifully evocative stories illustrate the meaning of these words and the way they can shape even the humblest act. A beggar learns the value of lifting the bitter stone of malice from his heart. A shepherd sees that even the simplest song chanted in a field can be equal to the prayers of the most learned rabbi. And a generous couple discovered the miracles that result from a freely bestowed act of kindness.
