Description: Four Jewish men meet on a ship crossing the Atlantic, fleeing the poverty and pogroms of Europe, hoping for a better life in the unknown cities and towns of America. On the long and difficult crossing, the four recall the oft-told stories of Rabbi Levi-Yitzhok and perform them for one another. In time-honored fashion, they debate the stories' meaning and dispute the question "What is the responsibility of the Jew in this world?"
