I got up, walked into the British manager's office, and asked him, "Mr. Walker, could you please tell me if there are any Jews in
"Yes, sir, Jews."
"Well, now let me see. There is Mr. Rokach, but he doesn't want anybody to know that he's Jewish. Then there is Mr. Sidki, but for some reason his store is closed today."
"Where does Mr. Sidki live?"
"He lives above his store."
"Could you tell me where his store is?"
"Of course, sir. Walk down the main street and you will find the house on the second corner to your right. It is the only two-story house on the street. You can't miss it."
I started walking. The sand blew into my face. I hardly saw the people in the street, but I finally reached the house. The shutters of the store were rolled down. Everything was closed and quiet. I started banging on the shutters with my fist, and suddenly a window on the first floor was opened.
"Who's there?" a man asked from above.
"Shalom aleichem," I said.
"Aleichem shalom, baruch haba. Come up the stairs behind the building. We are all waiting for you."

Now I knew why they had all been waiting for me. I was the tenth man to complete the minyan, the prayer quorum.
