Necessary Stories by Haim Watzman

Cover for Necessary Stories by Haim Watzman

The book at Amazon and on Kindle

Twenty-four stories of Israeli and Jewish life, chosen from the more than one hundred Haim Watzman has written over the last nine years in his “Necessary Stories” column in the The Jerusalem Report. Bookended by a flashback to his first weekend in Israel forty years ago and a storytelling encounter on a recent flight back home from the US, these stories—funny, meditative, and sad, set in immigrant camps, the army, and the author’s own neighborhood in south Jerusalem—uniquely capture what it is like, in our age, to be an Israeli and a Jew.
