The Bridal Canopy tells the story of reb Yudel, a simple Jewish scholar who sets out to travel to the lands of the kaiser to seek bridegrooms for his three daughters and thus to fulfill the sacred commandment of bringing them under the bridal canopy. With his waggoner, a story teller of lusty imagination, and a team of horses, he travels the length and breadth of the world which lies withing his ken, and many adventures befall him as he beguiles the time of the journery by exchanging stories with his waggoner and other wayfarers.
