JPS is helping to make the Jewish community the "People of the e-Book" by making our most important texts available in multiple electronic formats. Most excitedly, we are working on "eTANAKH," a digital version of the JPS Bible that is linked to commentaries written by the most influential Jewish thinkers. This modern approach to Bible study enables readers to easily access insights and interpretations from all walks of Judaism.

JPS Folktales of the Jews

Edited by Dan Ben-Amos; Dov Noy, Consulting Editor

Projected Publication 2017

Volume 4: Tales from Central Asia

Volume 5: Tales from Other Lands

The tales in this series have been selected from the Israel Folklore Archives (IFA), a treasure house of Jewish lore. Each tale is accompanied by commentary explaining the tale's cultural, historical, and literary background and its similarity to other tales in the IFA collection, and extensive scholarly notes and accompaniments.
