This one's an entertaining collection of folk tales from the Jewish folks of Eastern Europe. They're pretty short and straightforward, mostly collected in the early decades of the 20th Century. I can only imagine that they were much more entertaining when told by a storyteller. Still, it's a nice collection to keep handy for a brief, entertaining read.

Good collection of stories of all sorts, from moral-based parables to silly nonsense tales. Helps if you know the basics of Judaism, but it's not absolutely necessary.
