It isnot too hazardous to say that in point ofinventiveness they can vie with the ArabianNights Entertainments^ and in ideality andmoral elevation they far surpass them.These tales of fact, folklore, and fictionmay serve to open a window of the greatdungeon wherein at least half of scatteredIsrael suffers, worships, and dreams. Livingin a gloomy present, and ever picturing agolden future - languishing in wretchednesshere, while never losing hope in a blessedhereafter, it is a race that has learned toweep and laugh at the same time. Now andthen the scene is tinged with the melo-dramatic, but it never fails to convey pro-found faith, deep reverence, lofty morality,proud self-consciousness, and sublime spir-ituality.That the Russian Jew is in possession ofenough material for tales of woe, needed nodemonstration. What the world does notyet appreciate is his optimism, his readinessto laugh at the humorous sides of life, andhis ability to make others laugh at them.Product descriptionIf you HATE the book with strange characters, introduced typographical errors, and jumbled words, this book is for you.We dont use OCRd book technology (Optical character recognition, usually abbreviated to OCR, is the mechanical or electronic translation of scanned images of handwritten, typewritten or printed text into machine-encoded text) to make the kindle version but we bring to you by THE SCANNING OR PHOTOGRAPH PROCESS.
