About this title

Synopsis:

In order to protect the Jews of Prague, Rabbi Loew creates Joseph, a golem that only exists to Rabbi Loew, but Rabbi Loew suddenly realizes that his creation has reached into an area reserved by God and will soon have to face the consequences.

Review:

According to legend, some four centuries or so ago a Rabbi in Prague dreamt that the Lord commanded him to create a creature to protect Jews from those who would do them wrong. The Rabbi fashioned a giant from clay and, with the help of a cabalistic spell, brought the creature to life. The story, of course, served as the basis for Frankenstein. Barbara Rogasky, who has retold other traditional stories in such previous books as Rapunzel and The Water of Life: A Tale from the Brothers Grimm, brings the 400-year-old story back to life with The Golem.
