All is not always what it seems, as we learn when a man from
Pinsk tricks a woman in Minsk with a dancing bear and a very sweet
Minchah (afternoon service). Join Rabbi Steven Bob, as he
shares the tale of “The Dancing Bear”.
Judaism has a deep and rich tradition of storytelling, passing down stories from one generation to the next. To carry on that tradition, Stories We Tell from ReformJudaism.org will share a new story with you every Thursday. Whether you listen while driving to work, preparing Shabbat dinner, or taking your kids to school, each episode will give you a new story to reflect on and discuss with the people in your life.
Stories We Tell is a project of the Union for Reform Judaism, a leading voice in the discussion of modern Jewish life.
