Editorial Reviews

New York Times Book Review
So rich is The Bridal Canopy that a careful student could reconstruct the entire world of the Jews of Galicia in 1800 from its pages.
Christian Science Monitor
The Bridal Canopy . . . contains much rich material for the student of mankind. In its delineation of a picturesque way of life, in its stressing of simple faith and lasting values, Samuel Agnon's work gains a place of importance in contemporary literature.
