Bad Rabbi And Other Strange but True Stories from the Yiddish Press

Feb
22

Author Edward Portnoy will discuss his new book Bad Rabbi (Stanford University Press), an underground history of downwardly mobile Jews from the seamy underbelly of New York and Warsaw, the two major centers of Yiddish culture before WWII. With true stories plucked from the pages of the Yiddish papers, Portnoy introduces drunks, thieves, murderers, wrestlers, poets, and beauty queens whose misadventures were immortalized in print.
