Product Description
Malkah Shapiro (1894-1971) grew up in Poland, the daughter of a noted Hasidic master. The Rebbe's Daughter tells her story: a rare glimpse of the world of the Hasidic Jew in pre-World War I Eastern Europe. There is much discussion about father-daughter interactions, girls' education, Polish-Jewish relationships, holidays and local customs, and folk-healing practices.

Shapiro's tale, translated and presented in Rabbi Polen's capable hands, is poetic and sensitive, providing a rich and inviting history for its readers.

"Written with remarkable curiosity, warmth, and wisdom, The Rebbe's Daughter is both gripping and moving."
