About this title


A novel of manners, The Chosen People is the story of Philip Graetz, a young, idealistic rabbi called to minister to a wealthy congregation in Baltimore in the early 1900s. His goal, to incorporate Jewish ethics into everyday life, is put to the test when he confronts the gulf between old German immigrant and the new Russian immigrant, each a world apart.


"The Chosen People is a delight. . . . It offers more than a glimpse into the life of Baltimore Jews. We are led from a fiercely idealistic vision to a realistic view of the relations of Capital and Labor at the turn of the century, as well as to an even grimmer scenario involving the vicious antagonism between German Jews (we) and the Eastern Yiddish-speaking (they).

"Young Rabbi Graetz is torn between the easy life, the adulation of an adoring throng, and his inner feelings that there should be no suffering on this earth. Graetz is battered by conflicting emotions-both amorous and political-and his path is thorny." -- The Jewish Currents
