FROM INSIDE THE BOOK
Stories of miracles and wonder inspire a deep faith and trust in Hashem (G-d). This is probably why such stories were told to me by my parents and siblings at bedtime and on long Shabbos afternoons. Some of the these endearing stories were told to my father by his mother, Bubby Chaya Malka Goldstein (née Goldman) nearly eighty years ago in Providence, Rhode Island. Being passed from generation to generation, the tales likely grew and evolved over time, but they are no less fun and no less wise. Decades later, finding myself straining to remember many of these riveting adventures so that I could pass them to my own children, I decided to recapture them in writing for all to enjoy. Special thanks to my dear brother, Rabbi Levi Goldstein, and my dear sister, Toby Lieder, for helping me fill in many gaps, and to Leibel Estrin, Hindy Goldstein, and Manya Goldstein for their editorial assistance. I hope you enjoy reading these stories as much as I have enjoyed collecting them! Zalman Goldstein
