The Hasidic Jews of Eastern Europe, part of a religious revival movement with roots dating back to the eighteenth century, have traditionally been characterized by the intensity of their faith, the fervor of their mysticism, and a joyous optimism eloquently expressed in their music, their dancing and their literature. Here is a volume of tales of magical amulets and prayer shawls, of fidelity beyond the grave to the heritage of one's family, of rare moments of great courage, selfishness and spiritual strength in the camps, of the intervention of God on behalf of those who have kept faith with religion and its traditions - these are true life stories of great power. Contains an Index.
