Description
In this collection—later reprinted as Greatest Jewish Stories—National Jewish Book Award winner David Patterson brings together biblical, Talmudic, Midrashic, kabbalistic, folk, Hasidic, and modern tales that remain prominent within Jewish traditions. Here are Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, great stories from the Talmud that illuminate the Torah, kabbalistic selections exploring the meaning of prayer, Jewish legends and folktales told from Ethiopia to Poland, examples of the rich Hasidic storytelling tradition, and the writings of Shalom Aleichem, Isaac Babel, and S.Y. Agnon.

"Some of the most important and beautiful tales of Jewish literature.... A rich tapestry and delightful reading for anyone who wants to scan Jewish fiction from the earliest days of Judaism to the present."—Jewish Reporter

"These eternal tales declare the holiness and chosenness of all human beings.... This is a wonderful collection for anyone to own and read at leisure, particularly because of the variety of themes and sources."—Jewish World News
