Marco the coal salesman, receives a fancy overcoat from a rich man as a gift, and “feeds” the coat with cookies, noodles – and even meatballs – when he goes to a feast. In the process, the astonished guests learn an important lesson about respect for the other. This new rendition of a traditional folktale exemplifies the saying from Pirkei Avot (Sayings of the Fathers), “Don’t look at the outside of the container, but rather at what is in it.”

Big Question

What’s more important, the outside or the inside?
