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.
