The Jewish Year Book 5663 (1902-1903), Isidore Harris. The London Synagogues.

This is another copy of the Jewish Year book - this time for 1902-3.  It is the seventh issue, and much expanded from the 1896 first issue that I wrote about here.  It is a printed snapshot of the Anglo-Jewish community in 1902, and like the other Jewish Year Books has too much information to … Continue reading The Jewish Year Book 5663 (1902-1903), Isidore Harris.

Jewish Year Book, London 1917, edited by Rev. Isidore Harris – Manchester

This is the 1917 edition of the Jewish Year Book, which was published by the Jewish Chronicle and produced under difficult wartime conditions as a paperback with thinner paper.  However, it is absolutely packed with information - a printed snapshot of the Anglo-Jewish community in 1917.  I cannot scan it all, and so I have … Continue reading Jewish Year Book, London 1917, edited by Rev.

The Jewish Year Book 1932, Rev. S. Levy – and the Federation of Synagogues

I bought this book in 1987 in the closing-down sale of the old Feldheim book store on East Broadway, New York.  I have other copies of the Jewish Year Book, from the very first one in 1896, but this is one of the most useful.  The earlier Jewish Year Books had plenty of information about … Continue reading The Jewish Year Book 1932, Rev.
