The Legendary Maggidim
In the past, the magic and lessons of Jewish stories were passed on through maggidim, itinerant speakers who exhorted, enlightened, and enchanted their audiences in shtetls, towns, and cities. Today, we can find those stories between the covers of a book: The Legendary Maggidim. Read about Guta Tova, the pious widow who defeats death and Eliyahu HaNavi himself, the Baal Shem Tov as he makes an unusual shidduch, the gentile Ukranian prisoner who learns about freedom from the elderly Rebbe imprisoned with him.
"An enchanting collection of faith-sustaining stories... A must-have book for anyone seeking to expand the mind, gladden the heart, and uplift the spirit." � Yitta Halberstam Mandelbaum, co-author of the Small Miracles series
