Translation of Rabbi Hirschprung in CJS

In 1941, Rabbi Pinchas Hirschprung escaped nazi-occupied Poland and eventually arrived to Canada that same year. Just three years after his arrival, Rabbi Hirschprung published a remarkable book in Yiddish called “The Vale of Tears”. Continuing his influence, in 1969, Rabbi Hirschprung became the chief rabbi of Montreal. An excerpt from “The Vale of Tears” was translated by Vivian Felsen and is available in Vol 27 of the Canadian Jewish Studies (CJS) Journal. This book has resonated with many people in quite a profound way. Make sure you give it a read on the online CJS Journal (link below!)
