Hello,
We would like to introduce a new publication by The Hebrew University Magnes 
press.
Rabbi and Community in the Pale
By Mordechai 
Zelkin<http://www.magnes-press.com/Authors/Mordechai+Zelkin.aspx?name=Mordechai+Zelkin>
[http://www.magnes-press.com/NetisUtils/srvrutil_getImg.aspx?unitId=5069]

The heroes of this book are the rabbis of small and medium-sized communities in 
Eastern Europe. Who were these rabbis? What were their training processes? Did 
they get their job because of their scholastic or rhetorical skills, because of 
their family ties, or because they had the capital to buy this position? Did 
they win "permanence" or was the threat of dismissal constantly hovering over 
their heads? How were their terms of employment and wages determined, and what 
was their economic situation? Were they perceived as spiritual leaders? What 
was their relationship with the community's power centers? How did they 
navigate between their duties as halakhic authorities and their desire to 
engage in learning and teaching? The book attempts to answer these questions 
based on an examination of the world of over a thousand rabbis.
