232 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. JUDAICA. It has often been said that nowhere in the United States can one find a greater collection of magnificent and historic synagogues than on New York's Lower East Side. As the ultimate destination for millions of immigrant eastern European Jews during the late 19th & 20th centuries, it became the new homeland and hoped-for goldene medina (promised land) for immigrants fleeing persecution, poverty, and oppression, while struggling to live a new and productive life. Today, the synagogues in which these immigrants worshipped remain as a poignant visual reminder of what had become the largest Jewish community in the world. Originally published in 1978, The Synagogues of New York's Lower East Side became the authoritative study of the subject. Now completely revised and updated with a new text, photographs, and maps, along with an invaluable glossary, Wolfe's book is an essential and accessible source for those who want to understand the varied and rich history of New York's Lower East Side and its Jewish population. Includes 100 black and white editions. (Key Words: Lower East Side, Gerard B. Wolfe, Judaica, Jo Renee Fine, Synagogues, Joseph Berger, Judaism, New York City, Manhattan, Norman Borden, Jewish Studies).
