There was a sultan who thought he was the smartest man in the entire kingdom, but one day he heard talk of how smart the Jewish people were. The sultan still didn't buy it. He knew that the Jewish people were smart when it came to words, but how would they fare in a silent duel? Rabbi Mark Kaiserman retells the story. For a written version, see [italics: The Language of Signs] in "The Jewish Story Finder" by Sharon Barcan Elswit.
