A story about
All the school children love to hang out at Hay’s house and it is quite evident why. Hay just loves to fulfil the Mitzvah or Hachnasat Orchim, inviting guests. Hay does at great job at making them feel at home. Hay’s half wall is used as the door that is always left open in case someone hungry is looking for a meal. Hay’s teacher often tells Hay that it knows why Hay is so humble and loves to invite others over and share its toys. It’s because Hay’s half wall looks like a yud – which is part of Hashem’s name. This makes Hay recognise that everything it has is from Hashem – that’s why Hay is always so happy to share.
