Jewish Folk Tales in Britain and Ireland

by Liz Berg - £12.99  The History Press Ltd (2020)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9780750991438 | ISBN 10: 0750991437

In this book of folk tales, Liz Berg shares Jewish memories: authentic tales, songs and jokes told by Jews in Britain and Ireland. Some stories moved from place to place, changing and adapting to new landscapes and taking on different textures, but the core of the story stays the same and is preserved through oral storytelling and recorded on these pages.
 
Here are tales from the time of Domitian's Jewish slaves working in the tin mines of Cornwall, through to the tales being told in communities today, all incorporating the wit and magic of a rich and varied culture successfully integrated into Britain and Ireland.
