Reviews (Rated: 5 Stars - 1 review)

Subject: Yiddish Tales
This collection of Yiddish tales made me laugh out loud and also feel sad. It has the typical Yiddish sense of humour attached to pathos and the deep mystery of faith and tradition. The reader was amazing giving each character his or her own Yiddish voice, that often had me laughing out loud! Brilyant! (That is Yiddish for brilliant)!
