Brilliant book
Inspiring..a must read...very enjoy
So smart, so wise and so fun. These tales contain all the folk wisdom you'd ever need to understand what it's like to be human.
This Rabbi is an amazing storyteller! These stories are great to just read yourself when you need some direction spiritually, and are easy to read aloud to groups of adults and children.
This book has a unique selection of very inspirational stories drawn from depths of Jewish Storytelling. It is a great guide for the whole family and has something for every occasion.
As a long time fan of Ed Feinstein, I was thrilled to see this book and to browse through its pages. Rabbi Feinstein does a great job of collecting some of the best Jewish stories around -- and rendering them in a "tellable" form. That would be good enough, but then he adds some leading questions after each story -- turning each reading experience into an educational experience as well. The best part is that story tellers will be able to use these stories -- and the questions -- in their own performance art. This is a very valuable resource for rabbis, cantors, educators, and camp counselors. A great Hanukah gift as well!! -- Rabbi Jeff Salkin, Atlanta, GA
Rabbi Feinstein is a master at the ancient craft of story telling.
Jews have told stories for thousands of years - and Rabbi Feinstein's retelling of classic tales fills each one with relevance and meaning. He carries on a fine tradition with erudition and nuance - he knows his characters intimately and makes every story come alive.
My son, age 11, kept asking to read this and that story again. And I did not mind. We read them each night, to each other at Hannukah ...as we watched the candles burn down.
