The Golem's Shadow: Elemental Wonder

Made from clay and animated by divine power, the Golem obeys its creator, but often at a terrible price. From Rabbinic legends to Kabbalah, from Frankenstein to The X-Files, we will explore the enduring power and influence of this dynamic figure in Jewish (and Western) speculative fiction.
