The Golden Mountain: Marvelous Tales of Rabbi Israel Baal Shem and of his Great-Grandson, Rabbi Nachman, Retold from Hebrew, Yiddish and German Sources, is a book by American novelist Meyer Levin. First published in 1932, it is a collection of tales of the Eastern European Hassidic Jews, centering on the holy men Baal Shem Tov and Rabbi Nachman of Bratzlaw. The territory and narrative elements belong to the familiar world of folk tales. However, these magical realist stories of the Hassidic rabbis are encoded with deeper levels of meaning similar to Buddhist, Sufi, Celtic, and other spiritual traditions. Lovingly recounted by master story-teller Meyer Levin, this glimpse of a now long-gone world is a wonderful anthology which can be enjoyed by all.
