Isaac Bashevis Singer (Yiddish: יצחק באַשעװיס זינגער‎; November 21, 1902 – July 24, 1991) was a Polish-American writer in Yiddish, awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1978.

Isaac Bashevis Singer's "The Family Moskat" provides an extremely sophisticated portrait of Poland's Jews during the first four decades of the twentieth century. It presents however two serious problems. Asa Heshel the protagonist is a rather vile individual who perversely misreads Spinoza and has dreadful personal morals. A more serious problem however is that Singer makes no effort to help the reader unfamiliar with the cultural context

A sequel to I. B. Singer's classic memoir In My Father's Court, these stories, published serially in the Daily Forward, depict the beth din in his father's home on Krochmalna Street in Warsaw. The forty-seven stories in this collection, selected by Singer himself out of nearly one hundred and fifty, range from the publication of his now-classic first collection, Gimpel the Fool, in 1957, until 1981. They include supernatural tales, slices of life from Warsaw and the shtetls of Eastern Europe, and stories of the Jews displaced from that world to the New World, from the East Side of New York to California and Miami.

Isaac Bashevis Singer made it his purpose in life to remember the culture of the Eastern European Jews, particularly those in Warsaw Poland-his own native land. In The Family Moskat we follow the lineage of Meshulam Moskat who was a pious and successful Jew. The rest of his family some pious and some finding their own way tell their stories in the pages of this book. Mostly, he ponders Spinoza, for years.

Isaac Bashevis Singer made it his purpose in life to remember the culture of the Eastern European Jews, particularly those in Warsaw Poland-his own native land. In The Family Moskat we follow the lineage of Meshulam Moskat who was a pious and successful Jew. The rest of his family some pious and some finding their own way tell their stories in the pages of this book. One of the central characters, Asa Heshel, should have been a pious Jew, however, he left his village in search of knowledge and falls in with the Moskats. Mostly, he ponders Spinoza, for years. Frankl wrote Search For Meaning is a much better way and had Heshel had the opportunity for That book, his life may have been much more different, but that would be a different tale.

My favorite character of this book is Abram Shipiro. He dances in and out of the story in his boisterous, larger than life way and was very entertaining for me. There is a lot to dive into in this book. Fate plays a large role as do the choices people make. Singer's books are deep dives into the comings and goings of people in life. They don't always make great choices and later in life, they often wonder what they did with their years.

I have to say, personally, I liked The Manor and The Estate a little better than The Family Moskat, but it was a different time period. It was the time of gaslights, tuberculosis and intense family drama. The Family Moskat deals with a later time. Socialism, communism and the looming German invasion is nearly upon the Moskats when in The Manor and The Estate, Calman Jacoby was building his empire. In Family, Reb Meshulam has his empire and has it doled out to the leeches in his family for their income as well, so many of his struggles are over, but the family plight plays on.

This is the story of a civilization told expertly through the immensely enjoyable writing of Isaac Bashevis Singer.

A most moving glimpse of a vibrant lost world. Pulsates with life in all its complexity.Wonderful humor.Written by an author with first hand knowledge of prewar Poland and its Jewish community who recorded his memories just as all changed during WWll.

After the Manor and the Estate, this book was not quite on par. Same theme, well drawn characters. Towards the end, tho, it seemed a little rushed, suddenly trying to expand on previously minor characters. I found myself skimming, trying to get back to the main people. Perhaps I shouldn't have read them back to back. Very informative and interesting, tho.

I moved to this book just after finishing a fast-paced historical novel ("Pompeii" by Robert Harris), and had to change gears before I could begin to really enjoy this. It isn't the type of novel where a lot "happens"--but it is a beautifully nuanced portrayal of life in a particular community--eastern European Jewish, early 20th century--and even more, of universally human life. The characters interact in believable ways, the descriptions are deep without being stultifying, and I was left deeply satisfied.

Global Progression
An excellent addition to the library for those who love Isaac Bashevis Singer's writing.

Weiehan
This is a great read on 2 levels. First, it is an engaging family saga. Second, it captures a world (Jewish Warsaw between the 2 World Wars) that is gone forever.

Perongafa
A very well-crafted story of a Jewish family living from the 19th to 20th Century - exploring the life of the patriarch and taking a convoluted path through three generations - the family with all its foibles; friends, both real and opportunist; lovers; outsiders who create major changes; etc. Long but always provocative.....

singer is an absolutely wonderful writer. hard to put down.
