Essential Jewish Stories

by Seymour Rossel
     
 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Jewish tradition, perhaps more than most others, has relied on the power of its narratives to maintain the continuity of its peoples at least since the Diaspora. Rossel, in this substantial anthology, has brought together the stories he has used as a rabbi, drawing from scripture, Midrash, folktale, and literary sources. Indexed by festivals, characters, and concepts, this is a rich resource. VERDICT For readers and preachers in both Jewish and Christian traditions. After Elie Wiesel and Martin Buber, readers should consider this a good candidate for the next go-to anthology.
