Gabriel is a Fiction Short Story Book. This book says It was the morning of a wintry autumnal in the year 1620, when a young man stepped slowly and thoughtfully through the so-called Pinchaa-Synagogue Gate into the Jews' quarter in the city of Prague. A strange scene presented itself. The morning service was just over in tiie synagogues, and whilst numeroas crowds were still streaming out of the houses of prayer, others, mostly women with heavy hunches of keys in their hands, were already hurrying to the rag-market situated outside of the Ghetto. The shops too and stalls within the Ghetto were now opened, and even in the open street an activity never seen in the other quarters of the city displayed itself.
