Abstract:

"This work, originally published in Mannheim in 1891, is a collection of twenty-six stories illustrating various aspects of Jewish life and culture in Europe before the twentieth century. Each story takes place in a different country, ranging from England to Turkey, and develops an isolated topic or theme from Jewish life, such as its holidays, cabalism, the Chasidic movement, fanaticism, secularism etc., in a sometimes humorous, sometimes dramatic, and often sentimental fashion. While the endings are always happy, the level of historic realism in the stories is high. Jewish Life offers a richly detailed portrait of jewish customs and culture prior to the deplorable attempt to destroy them during the Holocaust."--Jacket.
