Description:
The tales in this delightful comprendium were gathered by ethnographers in the small towns and villages of Eastern Europe as the population, which was soon to vanish altogether, dwindled during the 1920s and 1930s. Collected from people of all walks of life, they include parables and allegories about life, luck, and wisdom; tales of magic and wonder; stories about rebbes and their disciples; and descriptions of everyday life that are laugh-out-loud funny. Fantastic and wise, moralistic and irreverent, poignant and entertaining, these Jewish folktales continue to work their magic today, long after the culture that produced them has disappeared.

Culled from the archives of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, here are 200 enchanting Jewish folktales from Eastern Europe that are filled with princesses and witches, dybbuks and wonder-working rebbes.
