History

Early years

Judah Loew ben Bezalel was born in 1525.[1]

The Legend of the Golem

He became a leading rabbi in Prague, and created the monstrous golem, a statue of clay that came to life and protected Prague's Jewish community from harm.[1]

Death

He died in 1609.[1]

Legacy

In 1939, the Jewish communities fleeing Adolf Hitler's "protectorate" over Czechoslovakian lands and settling in Morvania brought their traditions and folktales with them, including the Legend of the Golem, whom they adapted to Morvania, adding that the Golem was also the creator of the Imperial Amulet (which represented the symbol of the kingdom's ruler).[1]
