This week we revisit a familiar story, The Scratch in the Ruby, previously told by Jerry Kaye, but with a lovely new ending added by Rabbi Leora Kaye. Every year, on the king’s birthday, he brings out his treasured and exceptionally perfect ruby and shows it to his kingdom. One fateful day, this joy is marred when a scratch appears. The king is heartbroken, as no one can fix his ruined ruby, until a young girl teaches the king two lessons – how to see the beauty in imperfections and the importance of taking great care when given charge of something so valuable to another person.
