In time for everyone’s favorite Lag B’omer Parade which in past years was jointly lead by the beloved Rabbi Yosef (“Uncle Yossi”) Goldstein, and Rabbi J.J. Hecht, comes the new release of “Uncle Yossi’s Big Book of Stories – Volume 2.”
On the heels of the very successful launch last year of the first volume containing 25 carefully selected tales transcribed from the unforgettable recordings of “Story-Time With Uncle Yossi,” the beautifully designed volume two brings another 24 of Uncle Yossi’s classic stories to life.
Drawn from the midrash, Talmud, and Jewish lore, these cherished stories instill a love of Hashem, love of the Torah, and love of the Jewish people, planting the seeds for fine character development and personal refinement. A legend amongst youngsters, Rabbi Yosef Goldstein has inspired generations of children through his stories and songs conveyed in a wholesome and captivating manner, teaching the eternal ethics and morals of our people and heritage. For over 40 years, Uncle Yossi has been a household name in Jewish homes around the world. From the first release of what was to become an ongoing series, his recordings were eagerly welcomed in homes across the globe.
The “Uncle Yossi’s Big Book of Stories” series was released by the Jewish Learning Group, publisher of Jewish books and educational material, founded by his son, Rabbi Zalman Goldstein of Monsey, NY.
“As the youngest of his 10 children, I feel very grateful for having merited the opportunity to observe my father practice his craft throughout my childhood years,” said Zalman, who has also published individual single story art-book editions of his father’s stories in the past.
“It is a great privilege and honor for me and our family to be able to share our father’s wisdom with the world,” Zalman Goldstein said. “I have no doubt that this addition to the collection of his iconic stories will become a classic in Jewish homes, schools, and libraries around the world, perpetuating his legacy of blending enjoyable entertainment with wholesome Jewish education for people from all walks of life.”
