Two reel to reel tapes. (Copied onto C86-139). Interview with rabbi Rami Shapiro, recorded at Temple Beth-Or. He discusses growing up in Massachusetts; his family history; training to be a rabbi; folk tales ("wonder tales") from his family; examples of these tales; and examples of other Jewish stories and folklore. The interview was interrupted several times by telephone calls. The Dade Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1986 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalas, Nancy Nusz and Laurie Sommers in order to identify folk arts and folk artists for the special folklife area at the 34th Annual Florida Folk Festival. The traditions are mainly Haitian, Jamaican, Mexican, Bahamian, Cuban and Jewish and cover a wide range of skills and art forms.
