Jewish Values: Golem, The

Note: 
Told in twelve chapters, Rogasky's tales of the Golem emphasize the recurrent threat of anti-Semitism, linking the Blood Libel that endangered the Jews of sixteenth century Prague with the Holocaust. From his creation to his death, the Golem is a compelling figure but the hero of the stories is Rabbi Loew, who created and destroyed him. The outstanding illustrations, several per chapter, capture both the outward and inward qualities of the characters and the distinctive look of Prague. An excellent version of the classic tale for older children.
