"[A] superb volume ... Essential. All readers; all levels."-Choice "A monumental, National Jewish Book Award-winning masterwork of memory, history, and minhagim ... a profoundly valuable collection."-Jewish Book World "The Folktales of the Jews is a landmark publication in Jewish and world folklore. In this monumental collection, immediately recognizable as a classic, Dan Ben-Amos has selected, annotated and commented on a broad range of tales drawn from Sephardic tradition. Not since Louis Ginzberg"s The Legends of the Jews has such an ambitious and comprehensive collection of Jewish lore been undertaken."-Howard Schwartz, author of Tree of Souls: The Mythology of Judaism "This is a magnificent book: a major, crucially important contribution to Folklore scholarship, to Jewish Studies, and, of course, to Sephardic studies in particular."-Samuel G. Armistead "Treasured in memory and shaped anew with each telling, these wonderful stories are now beautifully inscribed on the pages of this splendid book. The journey of each tale along the Sephardic trail is traced with erudition and grace. Truly a treasure of Jewish folk wisdom in its most artful form."-Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett, University Professor and Professor of Performance Studies, New York University
