Chicken Soup for the Jewish Soul: 101 Stories to Open the Heart and Rekindle the Soul

Jack Canfield / Author, Mark Victor Hansen / Joint Author, Dov Peretz El

Health Communications' Inc.'s Chicken Soup series has hatched another chick, though this one is so superior to the usual round of ""chicken soup for the [insert your occupation or identity here]'s soul"" that it deserves special mention. Chicken Soup for the Jewish Soul: Stories to Open the Heart and Rekindle the Spirit, edited by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Rabbi Dov Peretz Elkins, enhances the series' basic recipe with a few delicious matzo balls. Contributors include Rabbi Lawrence Kushner, Kirk Douglas, Rabbi Harold Kushner, Golda Meir, Anne Frank, George Burns, Ed Koch and a host of unknowns. Portions of the proceeds go to Hadassah and the National Yiddish Book Center.
