Columbia University Professor Miriam Hoffman’s son, Avi, shares her popular book, “Curious Rabbinic Tales: The Shortest Tall Stories.”

September 1 @ 3:00 pm 4:00 pm

As part of YI Love Yiddishfest 2021

Columbia University Professor Miriam Hoffman’s son, Avi Hoffman, shares tales and legends from her popular book, “Curious Rabbinic Tales: The Shortest Tall Stories.” These tales talk about miracles, heroism and cowardice, but above all, the poor folk and the wealthy. In short, anything we wouldn’t say openly, we would disguise it in a parable or a folktale. Don’t miss this live exciting lecture!
