This fascinating mystical adventure, the sequel to the best-selling book The Golem of Prague, is gripping reading. Readers will be swept along in an adventurous story as the ancient breastplate of the kohen gadol (high priest), affixed with twelve sacred stones, is discovered--and stolen. As the threat of war looms, the saintly Maharal of Prague, Rabbi Yehudah Loevy ben Bezalel, is compelled to recreate the awesome Yossele the Golem to rescue the Jews and avert disaster.
Culled from more than two dozen sources, the introduction to The Sacred Stones provides the reader with a historical backdrop to the era and focuses briefly on the life and philosophy of the Maharal.
