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.Isaac Bashevis Singer (1904-91) was the author of many novels, stories, children s books, and memoirs. He received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1978.
