    It is Yom Kippur, and the entire village - a town so poor there is nothing to steal and no one to steal it from - is praying in shul, observing the daylong fast. There is an out-of-town stranger with them - a rich visitor and a generous one too: He donates to the rabbi, the cantor, the shul, and the poorest of the town. So it is particularly shocking when, near the end of the service, the visitor suddenly discovers that the rest of the money he had with him has been stolen!
