I spent most of my childhood in Chattanooga, growing up in its Jewish Community. I left in 1974 for career reasons and my parents left in 1996 to be closer to their sons and grandchildren.

I was back in Chattanooga in October for a family funeral and learned of this book. It was written by Joy Effron Abelson Adams, who drove me to school in a carpool once a week for eleven years.

I ordered the book and was astounded when I received it! There is a photo of my father, uncle, and brother in the book. There is a rare photo of my mother's best friend who died of cancer in 1979. Her son, now a 60 year old physician in the San Francisco Bay Area was astonished to see the picture.

My 88 year old mother has spent hours and hours pouring through its pages.

Joy did an excellent job capturing Jewish history in the town that would have been "lost to the ages" had she not made the effort.

The book probably appeals only to Jews of the South, but I'm not so sure that it has general appeal.

Thanks, Joy for putting this together!
