When a wealthy older man decides to retire, he gives his business and home to his son. The son is so grateful, and it shows in his actions. But when he has a son of his own, and grows busier with work, his actions start to change. Does he ever make time for his father again? Cantor Ellen Dreskin tells the story that teaches an important lesson about expressing gratitude and caring for those who care for us. For a written version of the story, see “The Wooden Bowl” in The Essential Jewish Stories, collected, annotated, and retold by Seymour Rossel.
