“Wings” is an absolutely beautiful novella, not so much in literary style as in characterization and message. It's about Yaakov Fliegel, an old man who's been the baal tefilla (prayer leader) for his shul for years and years. He takes his job seriously, but the community wants to retire him. In order to do this without hurting his feelings, they come up with an idea to give him a free trip to Eretz Yisroel (Israel). And then we get to see just how important his tefillos are in Heaven.
