This abridged and annotated English edition of “Mimekor Yisrael” follows the same principles that guided Micha Joseph bin Gorion in collecting and annotating these tales for their publication in German translation as “Der Born Judas”. These tales exemplified literary endurance in Jewish societies for generations. Narrators, scribes, and local publishers repeatedly reproduced them in oral, written, or printed forms until they have become the classics of Jewish folk tradition. Their continuous reappearance in the current oral literature of many Jewish ethnic groups is further evidence of their inherent centrality in their respective communities. The selection of tales in this vol. preserves those texts that relate to central themes in Jewish traditional literatures.
