A Must Buy Mar 2, 2001
Once in awhile, not often, but once in awhile, a reader comes across a compilation that literally vibrates with the intensity of each of these wonderful stories. Everyone is unique, from different parts of the world, but all contain the central core of Jewish identity, which is a true tribute to all Jews in the State of Israel or the Diaspora. Congratulations to the editors. They have done a fine job of including well-known writers as well as introducing us to some exciting new authors. I only wish my copy was hard bound so that it could better stand the constant use.
A bedside gem !!! Sep 3, 1998
After borrowing this book from a good friend, I couldn't pull myself from these beautifully written stories. Not only does this book present the centripetal connections of scattered Jewish souls, but its stories weave tales of all basic human experiences. Just take a peak at the table of contents, and you won't believe your eyes when you discover how truly successful the Diaspora was and has been for the Jewish community. Writers from Guatemala, Brazil, South Africa, Iraq, and China braid a captivating anthology that offers every reader something unique. A must buy!
