Hamor is not a handsome donkey, but he holds his head high. Every day, he takes Rabbi Moses Maimonides to the sultan’s palace, and he always listened to the rabbi’s musings. One day, a fine horse appears in the stable and announces that, to save time, he will be taking the rabbi to the palace from now on. Hamor sadly agrees that the fast horse will give the rabbi more time to write and think. The rabbi, however, soon returns to his old donkey whose slow ride was his only time for uninterrupted thinking all day. Hamor is quietly pleased to be reunited with the wise man. Could it be he taught his rider a lesson?
