Rabbi Yechiel had a pair of candlesticks, and they were his most prized possessions. Every Shabbat, he would shine them until they sparkled and place them on his table. One Shabbat, the candlesticks weren't there! Rabbi Yechiel looks all around town for them, but when he sees his candlesticks through the window of a poor family's home, what does he do? Rabbi Leah Berkowitz tells the story. For a written version of this story, attributed to I.L. Peretz and Victor Hugo, read p. 202-203 in The Essential Jewish Stories edited by Seymour Rossel.
