The fifteenth and final volume in the S.Y. Agnon Library, this volume opens with "The Outcast," in a first-time English translation, an affecting novella about the clash within traditional Jewish civilization between Hasidism and its opponents, and how that historic confrontation plays itself out within the heart and mind of one sensitive young man.
