Jewish Radio Theater presents
The Mysterious Golem
with Leonard Nimoy and Gideon Zinger as the Maharal

Released by JRT Records in 1982 (“The producers request that this record rest on Shabbat and Yom Tov”), this is one of my prize finds from the WFMU record fair. Nimoy plays Rav Katz, the son-in-law of Rabbi Yehuda Loewe, creator of the Golem. Rav Katz (with a Spock accent) narrates to his son Chaim (with a Brooklyn accent) the story of the Jews’ persecution in Prague, and Loewe’s efforts, with a little Kabbalistic ritual and luck (and an Eastern European accent), to bring about a force that will rid the Jews of blood libels conducted by some non-Jewish residents of Prague (with Cockney accents, naturally).

The back cover states that this album was recorded in Hollywood (Nimoy), Israel (Zinger, Czech-Israeli actor), and New York (Chaim?).
