Once Upon a Time...Tales that Touch the Spirit

Someone asked: “With so many stories why do you mainly tell religious ones?” I have told ancient, medieval, American folktales and Jewish stories in the past, but it seemed that the religious stories were being lost. So many other storytellers tell the vast gamut of secular stories, and every Jewish storyteller tells the Chasidic tales. I chose to tell the biblical, midrashic and medieval Jewish stories so that they will inspire and touch the heart and soul of the listener.

A good year to you, my friend. I liked "A Bird Shall Carry the Voice". You probably noticed that I am just south of Baltimore outside of Annapolis. I haven't been very active in Professional Storyteller this year... always seem to be so busy. But I've realized that I need to take the time to reflect upon life and what's important. Stories are a great way to do that.

When I tell "scary Jewish stories" I don't need werewolves or Golems. With the inquistion, the holocaust, smashed windows in Cleveland, Refusniks struggling for simple rights and rats in the Jewish sections of NY at the turn of the century, I don't need much else. Truth is I tell several types of stories, personal, transformations, women's tales, scary tales, historical and "Jewish". But any tale I create and tell will be infused with my Yiddishkeit.

Welcome to PS.
Where are you in Baltimore? I don't know the periodical Biblical Storyteller. Can you tell me a little about it? RW

Rabbi,

Welcome to a grand sort of 'home' for tellers of all stripes.

What a remarkable and impressive background is yours, and what a world of experience(s) you clearly have. You obviously have a great wealth of wisdom to share with a great many tellers on this site (and I'm betting that I'm one of them).

I peeked at your very impressive website, and plan to get back to it and do some digging around very soon.

I look forward to your sharing with the PS Family -

Again, a sincere "Welcome" to you from me -

Tom Taylor - Deep in the Heart of Texas
