Reviews

Leonard Nimoy In Because god Loves Stories, I recognize actors I performed with on the Jewish stages, the parents and people I grew up with, and a few of the shlemiels I've come across...I don't know how I ever did without it.
Jimmy Neil Smith Founder and Executive Director of the National Storytelling Association A Superb contribution to Jewish folklore. From stories that re-create the lost world of the Easter European Jewish shtetl to a selection of Ladino-inflected pieces from Sephardic Jews, Because God Loves Stories brings to vivid life the role of storytelling both as entertainment and as a way of re-invigorating a precious tradition.
