When I was a little girl, I read this book over and over again. My mom now refers to me as a "stomach Jew," a Jew more culturally-attuned than religious. This book had a lot to do with that. My favorite stories were about the miracle-working rabbis, the ones who tried to bring about the coming of the Messiah. Perhaps not a coincidence, then, that when I grew up and became a medievalist, I studied the cult of saints! ( )
