Is the site name a reference to the wooden one?
I am living in Prague now, and there is very popular legend about Golem. Artifical creature created by Rabbi Loew. I found this legend on internet too - http://www.ced.appstate.edu/projects/fifthd/legend.html
I liked the legend of Golem
I enjoy reading all kinds of legends
My favorite is the Hobit Trilogy
I also enjoy reading ghost stories especially about my home state
I wondered about the name “Little Golem”. Today I found this in the archieve and I enjoyed reading the legend very much!
One day Great Rabbi Loew decided that he should do something to help the grownups and boys and girls. He remembered a story that his father told him when he was a little boy. His father had read one of the great books in the Synagogue. The story said that a Golem, a kind of servant, could be made out of a lump of clay!
“That is what I will do!“; Rabbi Loew said to himself. “I will create a Golem to help the people with their work. Then the grownups will not be so tired at the end of the day. And the children will have time to play.”
And with this Golem……….we all do just that!!!!
