4.0 out of 5 stars Jews in the Los Angeles Mosaic (book)
Recommended by friends...part of an exhibit at the Autry Museum in L.A....have scanned the pages & focused on just a few so far, so can't really give a full review. Looks very thorough.

The purchase went smoothly, good vendor. As for the book, it's okay but not what was expected.

This review is from: Jews in the Los Angeles Mosaic (Hardcover)
The purchase went smoothly, good vendor. As for the book, it's okay but not what was expected. These are scholarly articles that aren't very accessible to the general public, nor are they adapted to make them any more readable (which, to accompany a public Museum exhibit, would be advisable at the least). The article about the bakers union was quite interesting, but overall failed to connect and advance my knowledge because of its high-academia style. The other articles seemed rather pedestrian, focusing on cliches like Jews in Hollywood and Jews in the Music Industry. If your interest in LA Jewry veers toward the anthropological/historical, this tome contains little for you. I am a college educated, LA Jew with a strong interest in my heritage as well as Jewish life in Los Angeles. All things considered, about as enjoyable as reading a socio-psych textbook.
