This chapter presents the text of Lamed Shapiro's short fiction titled The Kiss. It explains that the story is about a pogromist who kills a Jew because of his refusal to kiss the pogromist's feet. It suggests that the pogromist's act is a mockery of Christ's humility in washing the feet of John the Baptist.
