"Chelmaxioms is a poem nearly beyond description. Replete with learning, thick with allusion, broad with humor, it is the story of the Town of Chelm, lost in both time and the Diaspora, and of the patterns-grids of logic, mosaics of syntax-emanating from it toward the pilgrim."
(Key Words: Jews, Diaspora, Maxims, Axioms, Chelm, Lyrics, Poems, Allen Mandelbaum).
