About the Recording
Recipient of the 2001 Gold Medal in Storytelling from the National Parenting Publications Awards, “The Champion of Hot Peppers” retells Jewish stories from around the world in a lively exploration of truth, strength, and the kind of courage it takes to be yourself. In these stories, a humble baker finds himself face to face with one of the hottest peppers in the world. A young girl tries to rescue a dying King against impossible odds. An impractical dreamer turns into the world''s greatest onion seller. Throughout the recording, rambunctious, haunting strains of klezmer music heighten the humor and feeling.
"The Champion of Hot Peppers" is told with storyteller Greg Harris’s characteristic warmth, humor, and insight. Rabbi Paul Yedwab of Temple Israel in West Bloomington, Michigan has called the CD “Fabulous. We’ve listened to it over and over.” Educators at Congregaton Adas Israel in Washington, DC hailed Greg’s performances as “Energetic and fun. You have the kids asking us when you’ll be back.” Helen Stevens Chinitz, Director of the International School in Portland, Oregon, writes: ‘...a professional and talented storyteller...I give my highest recommendation.”
