Oy! Only Six? Why Not More? Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish Life

With contributions from machers like Larry David, Henry Winkler, Jonathan Safran Foer, Elizabeth Wurtzel, Maira Kalman and Mayor Ed Koch, along with hundreds of never-before-published writers, Six-Word Memoirs on Jewish Life offers 360 stories of faith and family, duty and identity, celebration and tsuris that will inform, delight and inspire—six words at a time.

“Everything a question with us. Why?”
