A Jewish Life on Three Continents

This chapter of Frieden’s memoir carries forward the story of the author’s education, but it also reveals a great deal about the development of his psyche. Here Frieden describes his attempts to continue his preparation for the rabbinate, about his first significant interactions with the opposite sex, about his troubles with the military draft, and about his first encounter with the idea of marriage. This chapter also contains a number of Frieden’s by now familiar explanatory asides. Frieden expounds upon the way Hasidic masters developed their information networks, for example, and upon the way Jews circumvented the Russian empire’s laws prohibiting their involvement in agricultural lease-holding.

Keywords:   independent rabbinic studies, draft evasion, secular education, agricultural leaseholding, anti-Jewish laws
