When a young shepherd boy aims a stone at a spider’s web, he never imagines that this small creature will one day save his life. 

This simply written but moving tale of young King David - not without its humourous moments - takes a well-known midrash and shows us that one should not only be thankful for all of creationbut also that by using one’s own wits and very special talents anything becomes possible.

It’s a lesson for each one of us; a lesson for a kind, and one that the future Kind of Israel never forgets.
