The composition at Juhász-kút (Sheperd Well) is one of the sights of Ricse. The well and its composition was donated to the village by Adolph Zukor, who was born here.
The inscription over Juhász-kút: "For the village of Ricse, for his homeland, Adolph Zukor (New York) 1928. Renovated in 1987."

Ricse (sometimes erroneously written as Risce) is a village in the Tokaj wine region in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén, in Eastern Hungary. Prior to World War II Ricse was home to a thriving Jewish community. The founder of Paramount Pictures, Adolph Zukor, was born in Ricse in 1873 before emigrating to the United States in 1889.[1]
