According to ancient Jewish tradition, all the sorrows of the world rest within thirty-six Just Men, (in Hebrew, Lamed-Vov). These men are ordinary mortals who are often unaware of their station. It is believed that if even one of them were missing, the sufferings of the world would poison the souls of all, and mankind would perish. For the Lamed-Vov are the hearts of the world multiplied, as into one receptacle all our grief is poured. This dance is the history of one such Just Man.
