The parable has long been a favorite and very effective tool of some of
leaders and teachers. Think of the Maggid of Dubno, the Chofetz Chaim, the Ben
Ish Chai, Rabbi Shalom Schwadron - these great men were Mashal Masters, with the
blessed knack of creating just the right story to make an essential point. Rabbi Yisroel
Bronstein has learned their lessons well. In this valuable book, he has
collected hundreds of parables from classic sources and arranged them by topic.
Jewish Parables makes a delightful read, a welcome companion at
the Shabbos table, and an invaluable source of material for speakers, teachers,
parents, and anyone looking for a way to convey and idea or spice a talk.
