Agnon’s Etrog

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)

Nobel laureate S.Y. “Shai” Agnon drew on a wealth of classical rabbinic sources and existing Jewish and hasidic folktales, weaving them together and transforming them into a number of powerful short stories for the Sukkot holiday.

Join Jeffrey Saks as he discusses these tales and their origins, and how they in turn have influenced other authors and contemporary Israeli culture.
