Description
The Golem--a creature born of clay that looks like a man but is not a man, that is not exactly alive but neither is he dead.Stories of such nonhuman beings created by men appear again and again throughout the centuries. The Golem here is created by Rabbi Judah Loew to help the Jews of Prague, at a time when their enemies were many and their fate often a bloody one.Barbara Rogasky's version of the old Jewish tale is gripping and suspenseful. She has brought the Golem to dramatic and unforgettable life.Trina Schart Hyman's stunning illustrations make the Jewish ghetto of sixteenth century Prague as real as yesterday, and the Golem as possible as tomorrow.
