De Joodse Jakov Bok verlaat zijn geboortedorp om in Kiev werk te zoeken. Hij is de ‘fikser’ van kleine karweitjes, met weinig kans om verder te komen in de wereld. Na zijn aankomst wordt in Kiev een Russisch jongetje om het leven gebracht, en through pamfletten beschuldigt de geheimzinnige organisatie ‘Zwarte Honderd’ de Joden van de rituele moord. Jakow Bok wordt gearresteerd en brengt in afwachting van zijn proces twee jaar in de gevangenis door, waar hij wordt vernederd en mishandeld . Maar hij geeft niet toe en houdt zijn onschuld hardnekkig vol. Zijn triomf over de haast ongelooflijke wreedheid maakt hem tot moraalridder.
In deze immer actuele roman toont de literaire gigant Malamud de vastbeslotenheid en de wil om te overleven, ondanks de bedreiging met vernietiging.

Since the overdue eighteenth century, writers and thinkers have used the assumption of love—often unrequited or most unlikely love—to touch upon the altering cultural, social, and political place of Jews within the German-speaking international locations. In Mixed Feelings, Katja Garloff asks what it capability for literature (and philosophy) to exploit love among contributors as a metaphor for team family members. this question is of renewed curiosity this present day, whilst theorists of multiculturalism flip towards love of their look for new versions of particularity and universality.
Mixed Feelings is established round transformative moments in German Jewish tradition and background that produced really wealthy clusters of interfaith love tales. round 1800, literature promoted the increase of the Romantic love perfect and the shift from prearranged to love-based marriages. within the German-speaking nations, this variation within the thought and perform of affection coincided with the beginnings of Jewish emancipation, and either its supporters and competitors associated their arguments to tropes of affection. Garloff explores the generative powers of such tropes in Moses Mendelssohn, G. E. Lessing, Friedrich Schlegel, Dorothea Veit, and Achim von Arnim.
Around 1900, the increase of racial antisemitism had known as into query the guarantees of emancipation and resulted in a obstacle of German Jewish identification. while, Jewish-Christian intermarriage caused public debates that have been tied up with racial discourses and issues approximately procreation, heredity, and the mutability and immutability of the Jewish physique. Garloff indicates how glossy German Jewish writers resembling Arthur Schnitzler, Else Lasker-Schüler, and Franz Rosenzweig wrest the belief of affection clear of biologist inspiration and reinstate it as a version of sociopolitical kin. She concludes by means of tracing the relevance of this version in post-Holocaust works by way of Gershom Scholem, Hannah Arendt, and Barbara Honigmann.

We reside in fascinating but frightening instances! because the headlines within the information start to more and more mirror the prophetic pages of scriptures, and the inescapable fact that we're really nearing the top occasions, this key promise which G-d made to Avraham hundreds of thousands of years in the past is still as precise at the present time because it did then.
In today’s global our society is regretfully turning into increasingly more anti-Semitic and anti-Israel in its outlook. Jews and Christians alike needs to ask the questions: What does it suggest at the present time to bless Israel and the Jewish humans?
