Jewish Storyteller Press is a small, award-winning independent publishing company committed to using print‑on‑demand and e‑book technology to bring English translations of 19th-century Yiddish writers to 21st-century readers. Founded in 2007 as a way of celebrating Jewish literature, culture, and values, our goal is to publish new translations, adaptations, and original stories based on the works of once-famous Yiddish writers such as Sholem Abramovitsh (Mendele Moykher Sforim), Jacob Dinezon, I. L. Peretz, and Sholem Aleichem.

“Dinezon’s tales are remarkable for their veracity and drama. He makes daily life in the shtetl feel tangible, and his characters express remarkably vivid emotional clarity. . . . One certainly need not be Jewish to enjoy Jacob Dinezon’s stories.” —New York Journal of Books
