Too Much of a Good Thing
By Mira Wasserman
Roman King Antoninus likes things BIG and IMPRESSIVE. When he discovers that his friend Rabbi Judah celebrates Shabbat (the Sabbath) once each week, he proclaims that in his kingdom Shabbat will last the whole week long. At first the villagers celebrate the chance to eat and drink, study and play everyday, but after many days of no planting, no cooking, no buying or selling, they become cold, hungry and rebellious. Discover how Rabbi Judah solves the problem.
