See below for our 2019 Featured Teller - Eden Nameri

Bible stories I heard as a child have stayed with me and grown with me. Biblical text provides the outlines of each story, while midrash — both traditional and original — colours it in.

I first studied storytelling in New York, with the late Diane Wolkstein. I often tell stories at my synagogue, Congregation Shir Libeynu. I have performed at the Toronto Storytelling Festival and as part of the Ottawa StoryTellers Signature Series. I am a frequent teller and listener at 1001 Friday Nights of Storytelling.

I was surprised to learn that not everybody who went to Hebrew school or Sunday school remembers the vivid tales told there. I am looking very forward to sharing Bible stories with people who do!
