Agnon’s short stories may be found in S.Y. Agnon, 21 Short Stories, published by Schocken Press, now out of print but available from Amazon and other used book dealers. Other stories may be found in A Book that was Lost, a compilation of 25 stories edited by Alan Mintz and Anne Hoffman, also published by Schocken. These books are in English. Where possible, Hebrew versions of the stories will be made available at the time we meet. The stories and some background commentary will be available ahead of time at the Shul, on the announcements table outside the Sanctuary.  Everyone is invited. Each discussion is self-contained, so that it is not necessary to attend each session in order to participate, although attending each one would certainly be enriching.
