Program Summary: When a 4th grade class was asked “What would happen if there were no stories?” A young girl responded, “If there were no stories, there would be no world. Stories make the world.” This program, “Stories Make the World” looks at how societies use storytelling to define culture and to make sense of the surrounding world. Judaism has a rich storytelling tradition. This program is full of wonderful tales from around the world, both Jewish and others. These stories not only explore the cultural roots of the societies they come from, but also show how stories can help people speak to one another across traditions.
