Excellent collection of stories from the wide scope of Jewish tradition, from the Bible to the modern era. The short, paragraph-length introductions from the editor, David Patterson, help bring context to each of the short works, not to mention connecting them explicitly to Jewish belief and practice. These tales illustrate all manner of Jewish faith and deeds, from the fight against idolatry to the fundamental importance of love and neighborly behavior.

This is a nice collection of Jewish stories. Worth the price for the folk and modern stories alone.
