Item description for The Inexhaustible Wellspring: Reaping the Rewards of Shtetl Life by Heszel Klepfisz...

Modern science, philosophy, thought and reason owe a great debt to the Jewish ghettos that comprises shtetl life in Europe. Contrary to popular belief, the shtetl was not a place where fiddlers on the roof watched the world pass them by.

Quite the contrary. The author presents clear historical data to show that many great minds which grew out of the shtetl refused to shed their Jewishness in order to achieve fame in the world at large.

In his cogent analysis, the author reveals the great personalities that blossomed in the caldron of shetetl life, greats like The Baal Shem Tov, Y.I. Peretz, Franz Rosenzweig, Januz Korczak, and many others.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Inexhaustible Wellspring: Reaping the Rewards of Shtetl Life?

A work of impressive scholarship  Dec 12, 2003
The Inexhaustible Wellspring: Reaping The Rewards Of Shtetl Life by Heszel Klepfisz (formerly Chief Rabbi of Panama and Professor of Judaic Studies and History at the University of Panama), knowledgeably examines the thousand-year-old "Shtetl" Jewish community in Poland, and how it maintained its own language, forms of social life, educational network, moral discipline and more. This community declared an economic boycott of Nazi Germany in the early 1930's and broke relations with that country even though it meant losing income. The Inexhaustible Wellspring insightfully examines the Jewish spirit, its ramifications, the deadly toll of the Holocaust, and more. Offering new ways to look upon what Shtetl life was and its contribution to Judaism as a whole, The Inexhaustible Wellspring is a work of impressive scholarship and a welcome contribution to personal and academic Judaic Studies reading lists.
