As messianic zeal sweeps through medieval Poland, the Jews of Goray divide between those who, like the Rabbi, insist that no one can "force the end" and those who follow the messianic pretender Sabbatai Zevi. But as hysteria and depravity increase, it becomes clear that it is not the Messiah who has come to Goray.

Nobel laureate I.B. Singer's first published work, originally written in Yiddish. Set in a 17th century Polish town, the Jewish residents are unsettled by rumors of false messiahs, false prophets and maybe even the end of the world. God-haunted and fable-like, this reminded me a little of some of Dostoevsky's work.
