I love good stories. Folk tales, myths, legends, stuff like that. But I’m recently realizing that I seem to know more about myths of other world cultures than my own heritage. I know a good amount of the Old Testament, the basics of our holidays, and thanks to a children’s book I had as a kid the folk tales of Hershel of Ostropol, but I’d really like to get to know more. Any recommendations or resources?
Looking for interesting Jewish stories.
