Description

S. Y. Agnon's story of an old, long-suffering vinegar maker who longs to go to Israel, if only for burial, and who unwittingly stores his money in a Christian charity box. Is this short story a flirtation with Christianity? A tale of injustice? A Chassidic metaphor? An anti-British Zionist polemic? A story of Zionism leading to mitzvot? Or something else?
