Learn about the rich tradition of Jewish storytelling through the ages from Midrashic materials to “old country” European resources from which Jewish customs and beliefs emerged. Explore Midrashic materials complementing the Old Testament and sprinkled through the Talmud as well as Medieval Jewish legends, folklore and legendary accounts of Hasidic founders. Examine the development, symbolic meaning and spiritual importance of these folklores.
