Collective Hysteria, Jan 28, 2000 Reviewer: Esther Nebenzahl from Portugal \t""Satan in Goray"" is the first novel written by I. B. Singer & is characterized by its deep emotional and psychological content. Written at a time of troubles for the Jewish community in Eastern Europe, more specifically in Poland, it draws a parallel between the messianic disaster of Sabbatai Zevi & revolutionary ecstasies. In 1666, 18 years after the infamous Chmelniski massacres, a messianic movement developed in Eastern Europe, under the leadership of Sabbatai Zevi who proclaimed himself to be the long-awaited Messiah. The uncertainties & despair felt by the Jewish community, a deep-rooted belief in national redemption, & lack of strong traditional rabbinica; 239 pages.
