Debra Kaplan offers the first extensive analysis of Jewish poor relief in early modern German cities and towns, exploring the intersections between various sectors of the populations—from wealthy patrons to the homeless and stateless poor—providing an intimate portrait of the early modern Ashkenazic community.
Debra Kaplan is Senior Lecturer in the Israel and Golda Koschitzky Department of Jewish History at Bar Ilan University.
"The Patrons and Their Poor is a truly outstanding work of meticulous scholarship. Analyzing the range of communal policies pertaining to poor relief and the norms of charitable giving at the individual level, Debra Kaplan presents an excellent, comprehensive history of charity as practiced in early modern Germany."—Jay R. Berkovitz, University of Massachusetts Amherst
