Spend some quality time in The Village - nice stories and books

In the middle of the Black Forest, somewhere between Russia and Poland (and occasionally Germany) is a small village…

Visit a magical past for a break from the stress of today.

Izzy Abrahmson’s THE VILLAGE LIFE is a rich tapestry of stories with characters who will transport you to a magical place. ,
As Mrs. Chaipul says, “It’s like rye bread. You don’t need to be Jewish to enjoy The Village Life.”

  • Books and audiobooks  to savor, read and listen to again! 
  • Live (and virtual) performances that connect people of all ages and backgrounds
  • A podcast for adults and suitable for children (coming soon)
