A Charming tale to remind us all that our kindness works miracles.
When the sun sets and stars fill the sky, the square in the little town grows quiet and still. The cool air of distant hills mingles with the sweet scent of baking bread. The moon rises and glows softly. It's the sort of place where miracles could happen.
David and Jacob live in the same little, ordinary town, but it's almost as if they re from different worlds. David is so poor he can barely feed his family. Jacob is so consumed with staying rich he thinks about nothing but money. But the two men have one thing in common: they both believe that miracles are big, magical things that can only happen somewhere else, to someone else.
But when Jacob wakes up from a nap in synagogue one day, sure that God has demanded twelve loaves of bread from him, all this changes in amazing ways you d never expect.
A delightful, timeless legend based on Jewish tradition, "In God's Hands" tells of the ordinary miracles that occur when we really, truly open our eyes to the world around us.
