Ms. Schram, who believes that stories form 'the link between the generations, ' helps forge that link with this book, ensuring that these stories will continue to live and breathe in the modern world


Peninnah Schram is a professional storyteller and recording artist, and currently serves as professor of speech and drama at Stern College of Yeshiva University, New York.


Inspirational and distinctly moralistic in nature, these tales [deal] with a gentle kind of wisdom, one that imposes itself on complex and often self-contradictory lives. These are marvelous, well-told stories. Journal Of The Royal Musical Association Jewish Stories is an anthology of 64 folk tales selected from Schram's extensive repertoire. They represent a variety of genres: fables and parables; midrashic elaborations on biblical characters or verses; hasidic stories; fairy tales transposed into a Jewish setting (a Jewish Cinderella story, for example); women's wisdom told over needlework or laundry; and riddles, proverbs, and jokes expanded into tales. Schram introduces each of the stories with an explanation of its origins-both where she first heard the story and its literary and folkloristic antecedents. Hadassah Magazine This collection of 64 folk tales, myths, and morality tales is a vivid medley of Jewish culture, customs, and history... The work is both entertaining and scholarly.
