More Stories from My Father’s Court
Isaac Bashevis Singer (au); Curt Leviant (tr)
A sequel to acclaimed Yiddish author I. B. Singer’s classic memoir, “In My Father’s Court,” these stories, published serially in the “Daily Forward,” depict the “beth din” in the Singer home in Warsaw, Poland. The “beth din” was a unique combination of court of law, synagogue, scholarly institution, and psychologist’s office where people sought the advice and counsel of a neighborhood rabbi. Twenty-seven times the rabbi’s door opens to the troubled people of the community, revealing the broader world to the young boy inside. From the earthy to the ethereal, these stories provide an intimate and powerful evocation of a bygone world and are a delightful addition to the cherished autobiographical work of the Nobel laureate. Tr. from the Yiddish.
