27 kortverhalen, geschreven in het zelfde stramien als "Het hof van mijn vader. Herinneringen aan een joodse jeugd". Deze verhalen verschenen oorspronkelijk als krantencolumns in het Jiddisch in "The Jewish Daily Forward" in de jaren 1955-1960. Ze stralen een heel aparte sfeer van "jiddishkeit" uit, en portretteren de vader van Singer als een lankmoedige rabbijn en talmoedgeleerde in het Warschau van voor de Tweede Wereldoorlog. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374527989, Paperback)

A delightful addition to the cherished autobiographical work of the Nobel Laureate

A sequel to I. B. Singer's classic memoir In My Father's Court, these stories, published serially in the Daily Forward, depict the beth din in his father's home on Krochmalna Street in Warsaw. A unique institution, the beth din was a combined court of law, synagogue, scholarly institution, and psychologist's office where people sought out the advice and counsel of a neighborhood rabbi.

The twenty-seven stories gathered here show this world as it appeared to a young boy. From the earthy to the ethereal, these stories provide an intimate and powerful evocation of a bygone world.
