In these challenging, uncertain times in which we find ourselves, the new Pesach issue of Jewish Fiction .net is being published a few weeks earlier than usual, in the hope that the power of great literature will help to distract you from the current crisis and provide you with some comfort and pleasure.
Issue 24 includes 16 beautiful stories originally written in English, Hungarian, and Hebrew. And in honour of the upcoming holiday, two of them are about Pesach:
* “The Trade” by Mendele Mokher Seforim (the fourth and final story in our holiday series of his work)
* “The Guest” by Remy Maisel, about a seder where Elijah the Prophet shows up.
