On a hot day, the rabbi and his students check in on Yukel the water carrier. After carrying the water buckets day after day, month after month, year after year, how is he feeling? And when they ask him a few weeks later, is his answer the same? Cantor Rosalie Boxt tells the story and teaches an important lesson about finding blessings, even when they may be hard to see. You can find a written version of this story, by Rabbi Nancy Wechsler-Azen, in Three Times Chai: 54 Rabbis Tell Their Favorite Stories edited by Laney Katz Becker.
