Summary

Now at a reduced price. A beautifully illustrated guide to Jewish life in the metropolis: Jewish New York celebrates Jewish life in New York City from the seventeenth century to the present through a selection of photographs, memorabilia, souvenirs, manuscripts, postcards, maps, and much more. Each chapter is illustrated with photographs, paintings, quotes, and ephemera that bring to life different aspects of Jewish life in New York, past and present. Beautifully packaged as a gift book, yet handy, practical, and inspiring, Jewish New York is of equal interest to tourists, newcomers, native New Yorkers, or anyone captivated by the history and culture in the "capital" of Jewish life in America. The book takes the reader on a visual journey behind the scenes and covers such topics as: Who Are the New York Jews? Where They Lived; How They Made a Living; a Tradition of Philanthropy; the Joys of New York Jewish Food; Yiddish Theater, Artists, Musicians, and Comedians; and Synagogues and Celebrations.
