Falling into the last category is Scribblers on the Roof, a summer reading series in its 7th year put on by Ansche Chesed Synagogue on the Upper West Side. Scribblers on the Roof: Contemporary American Jewish Fiction is an anthology based on that reading series. But more than just the title, the variety and depth of the stories in this new collection argue against A. B. Yehoshua’s recent statement that Jews in the Diaspora are only partial Jews to Israel’s full Jews.

Melvin Jules Bukiet; David G. Roskies, ed. The title comes from a popular reading series on the roof of Anshe Chesed, a synagogue on New York’s Upper West Side where the stories were first read aloud. Roskies, eds. Persea, 2006. The result is a veritable cornucopia of styles and genres. From Pearl Abraham’s fantastical Seven Fat Brides, about one bridegroom’s courtship of seven sisters, to Sonia Pilcer’s wincingly painful Paskudnyak, a quest for recognition by the teenage daughter of Holocaust survivors, there is a real taste of what is currently being written and thought about in Jewish literary circles.

Comments to eBook Scribblers on the Roof: Contemporary Jewish Fiction
Nahelm
Thank the editors for putting this volume together. When I read a great story I then go and buy more books by that author. I loved the story "Hall of the Meteorites"where the author writes " I contemplated the simple things and felt as I walked how easy it is for a heart to turn to stone". That's pure insight by Mary Morris. The Cythia Ozick story really knocked my socks off. What foreshadowing and the ending makes you realize what you thought was right about the characters is probably wrong. She is the best!

The quality of the stories varies, but on the whole a highly readable, intelligent collection.
