Over one thousand years ago, did the population of an entire pagan country, nestled between the shores of the Black and Caspian Seas and secluded in the forests of the Crimea, really convert to Judaism? Or is it just the stuff of legend? This sweeping historical novel tells the story of the Kuzars, with startlingly authentic detail and high quality writing that absorbs the reader completely. The fascinating plot and colorful characters bring enlightenment and inspiration even as they captivate the imagination. This book was originally written in German by Rabbi Zelig Shachnowitz, the famed German-Jewish author and editor who used his pen to fight against the Haskalah movement of his times. A timeless treasure, it has now been translated from the Hebrew translation, making it accessible to all who yearn to plunge into its richness and unique tapestry.
