This issue of Sreda online magazine introduces a new series of podcasts dedicated to folklore, legends, and fantastic stories, produced in collaboration with the Tolk audio platform. Each issue will feature readings of fairy tales from different cultures and explorations of the meanings with which they are filled. This second episode is dedicated to a Jewish tale about a young boy, Bebel. What is the meaning of the initiation ritual in the Jewish tradition? What is the main idea of overcoming difficult situations, even death? And why do children so often appear magically in fairy tales?
