We will discuss The Family Moskat by Isaac Bashevis Singer. It was initially published as serialized fiction in the Yiddish language newspaper Forverts (The Jewish Daily Forward) from 1945-1948. Panoramic in sweep, the novel follows many characters and story lines in depicting Jewish life in Warsaw from 1911 to the late 1930’s. Singer examines Hasidism, Orthodoxy, the rise of secularism, the breakdown of 19th century traditions, assimilation, Marxism and Zionism.
