Yossi and Feivish are twins and best friends. Besides their matching beards and identical clothes, they learn Torah together in their shtetl’s one-room beis midrash and sell eggs and milk from their hens and goats. But when their animals freeze in the frigid Russian winter, they must seek new ways to feed their families.
Which brother will learn? Which will work? And who’s the boss, anyway? They may just need a small miracle to decide. In this humorous tale by Andrea Ramon Eller, join the brothers as they uncover the mysterious meaning of the fortieth stone.
