Do you agree to be paid only if you get us there on time?" Confident in his horses and his skills, he agreed to the deal. But the driver and his horses were no match for the harsh Russian winter and they arrived in town days after Chanukah had ended. The chassidim reminded the driver about their deal. Feeling wronged, he insisted that they consult the Rov ■ more
