Description: Whatever the situation, whatever the crisis, whatever the sorrow or joy, Jews have a few brilliant words for it. Health, marriage, sex, food, law, raising children, poverty, success, optimism, cynicism, winning, and losing they're all part of the Jewish experience, and there are proverbs for every one of them. The hundreds of examples in this book come from the Bible, the Talmud, and dozens of current sources. Where There's Smoke, There's Salmon is for all readers, Jewish or not, who seek entertainment, knowledge, and some great one-liners.
