About this book
A collection of funny, engaging micro-tales for each of the portions of the Torah and one for each of the Jewish festivals as well.
These tales are told from the perspective of young people who feature in the Biblical narrative, young people who feature in classic Rabbinic commentary on our Biblical narratives and young people just made up for this book.
