Foreword by O'Connor, Thomas H.; By Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Greater Boston; Edited by Sarna, Jonathan D.; Smith, Ellen; Kosofsky, Mr. Scott-Martin
Published on the 350th anniversary of the first Jews to arrive in America, this comprehensive history of the Jews of Boston is now available in a revised and updated paperback edition. The stunning work combines illuminating essays by distinguished Jewish historians with 110 rare... photographs to trace the community from its tentative beginnings in colonial Boston through its emergence in the twentieth century as one of the most influential and successful Jewish communities in America. The volume also presents fascinating information about Boston's synagogues and Jewish neighbourhoods as well as the evolution of Jewish culture in Boston and the United States. Praise for the previous edition: The writing is engaging and lucid, and the superb, profuse illustrations enhance the text. While numerous community histories have been published, this volume is in a class by itself - and will set the standard for all future works of this kind. Library Journal For those of us who grew up with anecdotes of what being a Jew was like in, say, the South End in 1910, or in Roxbury or Chelsea in 1920, this history, collected in one place for the first time, fills in the blanks. It gives us the context for our inherited folk tales. Alan Lupo, Boston GlobeRead more
