The King isn’t sure which of his daughters he will name queen, so he gives them a test: each gets a special pearl, and whoever makes the most impressive choice about what to do with it will become queen. While two of his daughters hide the pearl away for safekeeping, the third sells her pearl for food and medicine for a family in need. Which one becomes queen? Marissa Solomon, the Digital Communications Producer at the URJ tells the story. For a written version of this story, see The King’s Three Daughters in “The Jewish Story Finder” by Sharon Barcan Elswit.
