Description - Satan In Goray by Isaac Bashevis Singer
The pogrom that had swept through Poland was now being hailed as a sign of the Coming of the Lord, the birth pangs of the Messiah. And in the little town of Goray, laid waste by murder, famine and demonic spirits, the stargazers said that they had seen one Sabbatai Zevi, robed in purple, bedecked with jewels, riding a wild lion into the city of Jerusalem. So the holy Rabbi Benish was usurped and the townspeople began to believe that the sick would be magically healed and the ugly made beautiful, and their children would wear golden jackets and dine on marzipan and candy. Meanwhile, as the dark forces gather, the prophetess Rechele falls into a hideous ecstatic trance, for it is she who has been chosen as the Devil's bride .
