Our Tales for Our Children

Our Tales for Our Children

Our Tales for Our Children was a project that creates audio-recordings of Russian-language Jewish fairy tales and short stories by authors such as Sholem Aleichem, Samuil Marshak, and Yakov Taytz.

Once recorded, stories are placed online and made available for free download. Through these stories, Russian-speaking Jewish children are given an opportunity for independent listening and learning, and families spend quality time together in a Jewish context.

The stories can be downloaded at the following links:
