“Kindness, I’ve discovered, is everything in life.”

Isaac Bashevis Singer

‘At Hanukkah time the road from the village to the town is usually covered with snow, but this year the winter had been a mild one. Hanukkah had almost come, yet little snow had fallen. The sun shone most of the time. The peasants complained that because of the dry weather there would be a poor harvest of winter grain. New grass sprouted, and the peasants sent their cattle out to pasture.’

And so begins our fourth story of the evening, Zlateh the Goat. One of Isaac Bashevis Singer’s most beloved stories, it tells the tale of Aaron and his goat, Zlateh, and the trust that develops between them during a potentially life-threatening event.
