Publisher: Artscroll

Rabbi Yehuda Loewe, best known as the Maharal of Prague, was one of the greatest Torah giants in the last 500 years. He lived in the 16th century, during a time of great tension for European Jews, when every Pesach season was colored by fears of persecution, beatings, arrests, and worse.

There is a tradition which has not been established, that in the face of these threats, Maharal created a Golem, a humanoid figure formed from mud and brought to life by secret prayers and Kabbalistic sayings. Given the name Yossele, the Golem's purpose was to protect the Prague ghetto from attacks by angry anti-Semites who plotted wicked schemes against the Jews living there.

According to the story, the Jews were saved from many dangers through the might and feats of Yossele. The local people were inspired and reminded of Hashem’s constant care and protection.

Generations have been thrilled and entertained by the exploits, adventures and foibles of "Yossele Golem." This book, translated from the Hebrew, presents these exciting stories and their message to a new era of readers.

Large 8 1/2"x11" page size. Full color illustrations throughout.
