To save the Jews in 1580 Prague, Rabbi Loew brings to life The Golem; a giant man of living clay. This creature protects the Jews from persecution due to a lie - that they have mixed the blood of Christian children with their matzoh. The Golem catches those responsible, then grows ever larger when the frustrated enemies of the Jews storm their ghetto. Elaborate cut-paper illustrations bring the legend to life.
