Example text

Again the poet was profoundly moved. Black silk gowns and candlelight flickering against the walls transported him at once to his lost, beloved Lithuania. The Sefardi melodies, the food stuffed with dried figs and apricots and perfumed with cinnamon and rosewater, the divans covered with silk and tapestry made no difference at all. Izmir was, he said, the image o f a Jewish Lithuanian town, Kowno-in-Levant. Quite mad, o f course, except that my father’s father’s family lived in Izmir while my mother’s father’s family lived in Kowno.

6And though their economic value was recognized, neither the intense, often primitive fervor o f Polish Catholicism nor the mysti­ cism o f Slavic Christian Orthodoxy was auspicious for humanizing the Jewish presence. And to these two kinds o f dangerous ecstasies, Judaism added its own, in the form o f Hassidism, invented at precisely the time that Poland was in the process o f being torn to shreds by the partitioning powers.
