    Tales from Arab Lands presents tales from North Africa, Yemen,and Iraq in the most important collection of Jewish folktales ever published. It is the third volume in Folktales of the Jews, the multi-volume series in the tradition of Louis Ginzberg¿s timeless classic, Legends of the Jews. The tales here and the others in this series have been selected from the Israel Folktale Archives, Named in Honor of Dov Noy, The University of Haifa (IFA), a treasure house of Jewish lore that has remained largely unavailable to the entire world until now. Since the creation of the State of Israel, the IFA has collected more than 20,000 tales from newly arrived immigrants, long-lost stories shared by their families from around the world. The tales come from the major ethno-linguistic communities of the Jewish world and are representative of a wide variety of subjects and motifs, especially rich in Jewish content and context. Each of the tales is accompanied by in-depth commentary that explains the tale's cultural, historical, and literary background and its similarity to other tales in the IFA collection, and extensive scholarly notes. There is also an introduction that describes the Sephardic culture and its folk narrative tradition, a world map of the areas covered, illustrations, biographies of the collectors and narrators, tale type and motif indexes, a subject index, and a comprehensive bibliography.

    Dov Noy, Ph.D., is the Max and Margarethe Grunwald Professor of Hebrew Literature at the Hebrew University, the director of the Hebrew University Folklore Center, a professor of Yiddish folklore at Bar Ilan University, the 1988 recipient of the Jerusalem Prize, and the founder of the Israel Folktale Archives.
