The most renowned Yiddish work of homiletical prose, particularly beloved among Jewish women. A miscellany of tales, Midrashim and exegetical comment woven around a Yiddish rendering and paraphrasing of the Pentateuch, Haphtaroth and Megiloth. Written in a tender, flowing style, the numerous editions have resulted in the text of the Tze’enah Ure’enah becoming a laboratory in examining the development of the Yiddish language over time
