Jewish mythology, is generally the sacred and traditional narratives that help explain and symbolize the Jewish religion, while Jewish folklore is composed of the folk tales and legends that existed in the general Jewish culture. There is very little early folklore distinct from the aggadah literature. However, mythology and folklore has survived and expanded among the Jewish people in all eras of its history.
