"From the darkness came the Firewolf, a creature formed from the soul of one who has sinned so utterly against humanity that they are doomed to walk the world in this form. Tobias steeled himself to face this foe, but the Firewolf did not destroy him; rather the Firewolf sacrificed itself for another. As it died, a snow tear fell from its eye and as Tobias lifted it he saw, within its glowing depths, the echoes of all the wrongs that soul had wrought upon the world. The only way the soul would be redeemed is if each of those it had wronged were to forgive what it had done. Tobias owed the Firewolf a debt; he took the tear and walked into the world.

This is the story of Tobias – a goatherd, husband and father – as he seeks to right the wrongs that brought the Firewolf into the world. Join Shonaleigh to hear the incredible story of his journey for redemption and the nature of forgiveness."


Shonaleigh is one of Europe’s leading storytellers. Having learned the Drut’syla tradition from the age of four, she carries thousands of oral stories from the Jewish tradition and shares their magic, mystery and wisdom with audiences around the world. She is a living tradition holder. “You hear people talking about the storytelling revival, but in Jewish culture it never died. I lived and breathed the tales during my childhood, unaware that this was anything unusual.”




If you like, you can immerse yourself for three evenings in this tradition. If you'd like so, please take a look at our event Teller, Tales and Tradition - Tobias and the Snow Tear
