The sultan hated getting haircuts because of his big secret: he had horns on top of his head. He was so afraid that people would find out, that he threw every barber who cut his hair in prison. Finally, the only barber left in town was summoned to the sultan. Was he thrown in prison like the barbers before him? Rabbi Mark Kaiserman retells the story. For a written version, see The Sultan’s Horns in “The Jewish Story Finder” by Sharon Barcan Elswit.
