Rav Yitzchak had to find someone urgently, probably for a get, but he did not know the address. He called a taxi, came out of the house, sat in the car, and said, "Let's go!" the taxi driver asked, "Where to?" "I don't know. I need to find a certain person. Please go…" They left Sanhedria and reached a traffic light. "Now, where?" Rav Yitzchak answered, "If one does not know where to go, it is written that one should make a right turn." They turned right and drove past the Ramot neighborhoods, left Yerushalayim, and headed in the direction of Tel Aviv. The driver could not bear it any longer. He turned into the first town along the way, Givat Ze'ev, and said, "You don't even have an address! Don't waste your money. Get out here -- look, here's a bus stop and go home. I feel bad wasting your money." Rav Yitzchak got out of the taxi and asked the first passerby, "Excuse me, do you know such-and-such a person?" The man answered, "He lives in that house over there."
