Kurshan on telling children Talmudic tales

TALMUD WATCH: Why We Should Teach Our Children Talmud Folk Tales — Instead Of Grimm’s Fairy Tales (Ilana Kurshan, The Forward). This essay is largely a review of a recent book by Jeffrey Rubenstein: The Land of Truth: Talmud Tales, Timeless Teachings (JPS, 2018).

I noted some essays by Professor Rubenstein here, here, and here. Posts here, here, and here are also relevant. And for more on Ilana Kurshan and her book, If All the Seas Were Ink, start here and follow the links.
