summary
Isaac Wetzlar was an eighteenth century wealthy merchant from Celle, Germany who spent many years reflecting on the socio-religious circumstances of German-Jewish society. He wrote Libes Brivin Yiddish as a critique of the situation of this society, and offered suggestions which he felt would improve the spiritual and material situation of his fellow Jews. Faierstein presents the text and translation of this important document, along with an analysis.
