The Silly World of Chelm
Beloved 'Town of Chelm' Returns in the World’s First Definitive Encyclopedia of Chelm Stories


After enjoying decades of acclaim in the pages of the acclaimed weekly newspaper, THE JEWISH PRESS, the lovable, side-splitting tales from the legendary town of Chelm have been collected in the world’s first encyclopedia of Chelm stories. This new treasury of Jewish wit and whimsy brims with over 150 stories straight out of the fabled town of Chelm — the place where solving life’s practical problems was never a straightforward affair, but rather a rollicking journey into the inane.



The world’s first 408-page definitive encyclopedia of Chelm stories re-acquaints readers with the unforgettable characters that everyone’s come to know and love, including, ‘The Wise Sage of Chelm,’ and fumbling ‘Shepsil.’ The simple-minded, ‘Mottel the Tailor,” and riotous, “Berel the Terrible.” In all, original writer and creator, Arnold Fine’s, recipe for simple and clean Jewish humor still delivers, and with so many stories gathered together in one book, ‘The Silly World of Chelm,’ is guaranteed to provide hours of fun and enjoyment for the whole family. In the new 8x10 large-format book, with a uniquely decorated padded cover, you’ll read about the, ‘Green-Eyed Monster,’ and ‘The Adventures of Kunkle and Munkle.’ You’ll enjoy the hilarious tale of ‘The Mayor’s Shoes,’ and learn about the formation of the ‘Worriers of Chelm,’ plus dozens and dozens of more popular tales.



“The brilliantly conceived, eccentric scenarios have, for decades, left readers of all ages in stitches with helpless laughter, all the while leaving them scratching their heads in wonderment,” explains Zalman Goldstein, author of other children’s titles such as, ‘The Sultan’s Trap’ and the popular ‘Uncle Yossi’s Big Book of Stories’ series. “Being able to provide good, kosher humor for everyone is a privilege that is difficult to pass up. In this regard, ‘The Silly World of Chelm,’ really delivers!”
