Product Description

The Yemen Journal of Rabbi Yaakov Sapir

When Rabbi Yaakov Sapir, a charity collector set out from Jerusalem in 1859, he knew he would need all his wits to survive his collecting trip. He returned after experiencing a terrifying adventure, and his perceptively wry account of his journey is one of the most exciting travel stories ever written. Traveling through Yemen meant starvation, plague, bandits, and rapacious rulers, which explains why few people ever went there. Rabbi Sapir, the indomitable "emissary of the Rabbis," plowed through it all, emerging gaunt and haggard but as determined as ever to carry out his mission. Perceptive, honest, feisty, and filled with wry humor, Rabbi Sapir's story has to be read to be believed.

An account of the life of Yemenite Jewish communities is written at length.
