Collection of 8 humorous satires of American Jewish life by R. Gershon Rosenzweig. Includes; Maseches Hedyotos, Maseches Chanukah, Maseches Nechasim, Maseches Masveh, Maseches K’zavim, Maseches America, Medrash Esther and Haggadah L’Sofrim.
For hundreds of years, persecution and difficult living conditions, coupled with quasi Talmudic logic, often cultivated a wry and sometimes satirical sense of humor. Frequently these publications reflect the times during which they were written, with cryptic references to current events.
