You might even confuse a Hasidic Orthodox Jew with an Amish person. On the other they adapt and mix in to the general society. The Book of Ruth, which appears in the third section of the Hebrew Bible, K'tuvim, Writings, is a beautiful folktale written in four short celebrates the loyalty and reward of a young Moabite widow (Ruth) who chooses to follow her Israelite mother-in-law (Naomi) back to Bethlehem after Naomi was bereaved of her own husband and two sons.

While Krauss' novel contemplates the meaning of the "Great House," Burt Visotsky, professor of Midrash and Interreligious Studies at the Jewish Theological Seminary, elucidates the "Great Stories"—the legends of the rabbinic sages recorded in the Babylonian Talmud.

Jewish folklore are legends, music, oral history, proverbs, jokes, popular beliefs, fairy tales, stories, tall tales, and customs that are the traditions of Judaism. Folktales are characterized by the presence of unusual personages, by the sudden transformation of men into beasts and vice versa, or by other unnatural incidents. A number of aggadic stories bear folktale characteristics.
