"Based on an actual event that occurred during World War II, this heartbreaking narrative poem about history, immortality, and the power of song is accompanied by magnificent full-color paintings by award-winning artist Mark Podwal. It is the evening before the holiday of Purim, and the Nazis have given the ghetto's leaders twenty-four hours to turn over ten Jews to be hung to "avenge" the deaths of the ten sons of Haman, the villain of the Purim story, which celebrates the triumph of the Jews of Persia over potential genocide some 2,400 years ago. If they refuse, the entire ghetto will be liquidated. The terrified leaders go to the ghetto's rabbi for advice; he tells them to return the next morning. Over the course of the night the rabbi calls up the spirits of rabbis from centuries past for advice; each is rendered speechless by what the rabbi describes. The 18th century mystic and founder of Hasidism, the Ba'al Shem Tov, tries to intercede with God by singing a niggun, a wordless, joyful melody with the power to break the chains of evil, but his efforts end in failure. Then the beloved Rabbi Levi Yitzhak of Berdichev appears. There is only one possible response, he says. And the ghetto rabbi agrees. That evening, everyone in the ghetto is herded into the synagogue courtyard. When no one steps forward, they are informed that in an hour they will all be killed. How does one prepare to die? The question is laid before the ghetto rabbi, and he teaches them the song that the Ba'al Shem Tov taught him the night before. As their voices soar upward, they are joined by Jews from centuries past from all over the world, all singing the Ba'al Shem Tov's niggun as the massacre begins. And as the souls of these men, women, and children rise to the heavens, their song continues, uninterrupted, to the end of time and beyond"--… (més)

Based loosely on an actual event, this narrative poem describes the heartbreaking decision a rabbi is called upon to make. He must either give up ten Jews of his own choosing or everyone in his ghetto will die by the hand of Nazis. The poem speaks of his agony as he searches for an answer. The writing is lyrical and the illustrations are touchingly beautiful. A detailed introduction and a glossary of terms add to the understanding of the Jewish ideals. ( )

Emotional, heartbreaking, brilliantly written, this narrative poem was written by Elie Wiesel in the late 1970s. It was found and brought to Elies sons attention by a Jerusalem-based bookseller. He had been unaware of its existence. It is set during WWII and on the eve on the Purim holiday. The colored illustrations fit this terrible dilemma of a poem, perfectly. No one should have to make the decision this Rabbi had to make.

A Niggun is a prayer that is chanted, usually at the beginning of a Jewish prayer service. This particular Niggun 2as written as poetry by Elie Weisel. As the musical part of the niggun, its difficult to say if it would lead you to a meditative state. ( )
