Jewish folklore is full of vivid stories that both entertain and teach.
This book is based on tales from the Talmud and Midrash.
While some of the themes are familiar from fairy-tales and folklore from other traditions, the stories in this collection are infused with the perennial Jewish struggle for survival and dignity, as well as a large helping of gentle humor.
