I am starving terribly; except for the 10—12 raspberries daily and the little liquid that collects during the night In the footprints of the grazing cattle, which I later hide, i have nothing to sustain myself.

But Satan appeared, in the form of a German policeman. While walking down the street, he heard sing-ing; following the sound, he discovered the sukkah. Reb Moyshe and his neighbors, sitting in their shtreimelekh around the table laden with white challahs, became very afraid, but they maintained their pride and equanimity. When the German asked what was going on the Jews explained that it was a certain Jewish holiday, during which Jews had to be happy, sing, and even dance.
