There once was a Rabbi who lived in a small town. He was a devout man and well respected within the community. One night he had a vivid dream that there was great treasure buried beneath the foot of a bridge, in a big city, far away.
The next morning when he awoke, he was so struck with the dream that he knew he must immediately go to the big city, find the bridge, and look for the treasure. After a long and difficult journey he finally arrived at the bridge. Much to his disappointment however, the bridge was being guarded by sentries. Undeterred the Rabbi decided to wait until nightfall and sneak up under foot of the bridge.
As he was near approaching his goal one of the soldiers shouted for him to stop, and asked him what he was doing. Upset and a little embarrassed the Rabbi confessed that he had had a dream that great treasure was hidden under the foot of that bridge.
The soldier laughed. He said, “Only last night, I myself had a crazy dream about great treasure being stored in the kitchen of a Rabbi’s house in a small town.”
The Rabbi smiled and thanked the soldier. He returned home content.
