You will want to have For The Sake Of Jerusalem as part of your library because it is the most up-to-date book that documents Jewish life in Jerusalem's Old City for the past 100 plus years. For The Sake Of Jerusalem is the historical record about the Yeshivot, Synagogues, and Jewish Leaders of this period. Historic photographs throughout the book help to document how Jewish life developed in the Holy City during the last century. Many of these pictures have never been published prior to appearing in For The Sake Of Jerusalem! For The Sake Of Jerusalem will provide you with a very clear picture of how the Jewish community in the Old City lived - and survived - on a daily basis while under the governance of the Ottomans and the British, then to war with the Jordanians in 1948 - and finally to Israeli control in 1967.
