Humanist Readings in Jewish Folklore

$20.00

by Bennett Muraskin

A collection of more than 120 Jewish folktales, selected with an eye to those Jews who seek their personal ethics and morals in Jewish culture and literature. The tales reflect the side of Jewish tradition that values freedom of thought, social justice, egalitarianism, and respect for the “other.” Offering an introduction, commentary, and bibliography, this book explores the pre-modern roots of Jewish Humanism.
