Journeyman in Jerusalem: Memories and Letters, 1933-1947
Picking up from Apprentice in Budapest, the first volume of Raphael Patai's autobiography, Journeyman in Jerusalem presents the fascinating journey of a young scholar struggling to make his way in the midst of often trying circumstances while a nation-in-the-making struggles to establish itself. The book covers fifteen years—1933 to 1947—during which the Yishuv, the Jewish community of Palestine, experienced one of the most turbulent periods of its history. This volume is an invaluable record of this era and of the early life of its author, who was to become one of the most respected Jewish scholars of the twentieth century.
