This review is from: The Jews of Boston (Paperback)

Being a second-generation West Ender and having to leave the West End by eminent domain, "The Jews of Boston" evoked a floodgate of emotions in me from which to reflect, learn, and view from photos. Granted, there is only a small section devoted to the West End, but it was also important and interesting to learn of the other Jewish neighborhoods in the Boston area. This book gives an excellent historical account of the struggles our people had to confront during the turn of the last century as they settled into Boston.

This book is very well written. Very informative. I like it very much! If you are a Jew from Boston, then you will feel very comfortable in immersing yourself in the history, geography and knowledge which can be found within these pages. You will get a sense of what type of life your parents/grandparents endured.

L'Chaim to nostalgia as we walk down memory lane.....!

More information than I needed, but where else?

This is an excellent book for those interested in the history of Boston's Jewish community. It is well researched, has lots of interesting photos, and was perfect for my husband who needed some specific information regarding a person who had lived early in the 20th century.

This work makes a good addition to a personal library for someone interested in genealogy of Jewish families in Boston, as I am.
