About the Event

Join  award winning professional storyteller, Susan Stone, as she shares  stories from many sources; Jewish folktales, Midrash, Chasidic tales, as  well as her life, all given interesting and lively interpretations,  lifted off the page with insight and skill, and put back into true oral  tradition. Funny, poignant, enlightening….Susan's personal narratives  weave throughout the program. When Susan tells tales she opens her heart  and, in turn, will open yours.

             National Jewish Book Award winner, renowned folklorist Professor Howard Schwartz has said….  "In her hands the tales, no matter how ancient, come hauntingly alive where every tale can be heard as if for the first time".
