"Each story is like a poem . . . hamrmonious and metaphorical" -- Jerusalem Post

These fifty tales, drawn from nearly every age and every part of the world, reflect the length of Jewish history and the diversity of Jewish culture. Each is a thread in the fabric of a fantastic world where faith and inenuity are rewarded, where poor tailors spin moonlight and dolphins dance to Miriam's tambourine.
