Product Overview

Joachim Prinz (1902--1988) was one of the most extraordinary andinnovative figures in modern Jewish history. Never one for conformity, Prinzdeveloped and modeled a new rabbinical role that set him apart from his colleaguesin Weimar Germany. Provocative, strikingly informal and determinedlyanti-establishment, he repeatedly stirred up controversy. During the Hitler years, Prinz strove to preserve the self-respect and dignity of a Jewish community that wasvilified on a daily basis by Nazi propaganda. After immigrating to the United Statesin 1937, he soon became a prominent rabbi in New Jersey, drawing thousands to hisunpredictable sermons. Prinz''s autobiography, superbly introduced and annotated byMichael A. Meyer, offers a fascinating glimpse into the life and personality of thisunconventional and influential rabbi.
