What wonderful treasure can be found on the shore of a Mediterranean island, a treasure worth many hundreds of rubles? What is significant about the "dance of the frozen feet"? How can prisoners in a Hungarian labor camp manage to celebrate Succos? These are some of the intriguing questions raised in the twelve beautiful stories presented in "Treasures on the Shore and other Succos Stories", the newest volume in the Yom Tov Series. As story follows story, the reader encounters such great luminaries as Reb Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev and Reb Moshe Leib Sassover, as well as numerous ordinary but colorful people from all walks of life. And each story adds another element of inspiration to the joyous celebration of the Yom Tov of Succos. "Treasures on the Shore and other Succos Stories" is the second volume in the Yom Tov Series. The first volume in the series, "The Captive Sultan and other Pesach Stories", was published a number of years ago. It has since become a perennial favorite with younger readers, and a new edition is soon to be released.
