Return Again is a unique blend of traditional and original stories for the Days of Awe and times of personal transformation. Although these stories come from the Jewish tradition, they are relevant for everyone, filled with universal wisdom, tears and laughter. Debra Gordon-Zaslow has developed a signature style of combining archetypal story with personal narrative by using the foundation of a classical tale and expanding it with the weaving in of personal anecdotes. She also has taken traditional male stories and revived them into tales that honor the divine feminine. Debra says, Each year I m privileged to tell these stories to our congregation at a time of year when hearts are open, when we collectively yearn to return to our souls. I feel a hush in the room, and I know I m reaching everyone on a profound level. It s the most rewarding kind of storytelling, and I am honored to share it with you on this CD.

Devorah Gordon Zaslow has been a professional storyteller for twenty-five years. She was ordained as a "maggidah," a Jewish storyteller by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi in 1995. She has performed and taught at the CAJE conferences, The ALEPH Kallah, and the National Storytelling Festival. She currently teaches storytelling at Southern Oregon University in Ashland, Oregon.Review:
Devorah Zaslow is a modern maggidah. The way in which she tells her stories turns you from hearing into seeing and participating in the events she describes. The way she moves from the tale to her reflection is a wonderful example of how we can best internalize the seemingly simple tales to heal our complicated lives. --Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
There is so much wisdom in these stories! As Devorah Zaslow interweaves traditional, Hasidic, and original stories with her personal tales and blessings, her voice reaches the heart of the listener. This CD, Return Again, is a treasure for the High Holy Days and for all year round. --Penninah Schram
Ok, I'm her husband so how objective can I be? But the way Devorah blends her own life experiences with classic stories is really special. As we used to say about Levy's rye bread, try it - you'll like it. --Rabbi David Zaslow
