This CD celebrates Jewish rituals, miracles and delicacies. Children and adults enjoy these enchanting folktales, all containing the nourishing ingredients for food for the soul: captivating voices, infectious songs, and strong characters, all laced with a wonderful sense of awe. quot;Cindy Marshall serves up a seven-course feast of stories interspersed with music, celebrating the Sabbath and Hanukkah. This is a nice collection of stories from traditional sources, as well as original works. Marshall's knack for storytelling will enchant children, as well as their parents. She delivers a lively, well-paced narrative and masterfully alters her voice to distinguish her characters. Punctuating the stories are clarinet and violin solos and songs. The package comes with brief, informative liner notes that provide story sources and a glossary of Jewish terms.quot; - Steven E. Steinbock, Audiofile Magazine, December 1999/January 2000 quot;[This]delightful collection of folktales, some traditional, some original, will entice all ages.

Each tale is rich with Jewish history and tradition.quot; -School Library Journal quot;Marshall conveys joy, sadness, humor and more.quot; -Hadassah Magazine Musician and educator Victor Cockburn co-produced the CD. Accompanying the stories are Ben Pasamanick on clarinet, Derek Burrows on psaltery, and Ken Richmond on violin.
