Stories--whether orally told or written down in treasured texts, whether in Jewish languages or the languages of the myriad places where Jews have lived--are essential to the life of this age-old and ever-changing culture. We will read together widely, from Talmudic tales to modern Yiddish and Hebrew texts, twentieth-century American Jewish fiction, and beyond. We will consider what makes a story (not just a Jewish one) special. We will listen to the stories of the elders among us, and we will work at becoming better storytellers ourselves.

When Offered Fall.
