Abstract

This article concerns the life and work of Jacob Teitel, a social activist and judge in the czarist Ministry of Justice. From his position in the government in provincial Russia, Teitel was able to aid Jews affected by legal restrictions by interceding with influential individuals. This portrait of Teitel offers a window to view the changes in Jewist life and reflects the complexities of the Jewish experience during the late czarist period.
