"A feast for the eyes...bringing alive a long vanished world that's still eerily present."--Daniel Czitrom, New York Post


The premiere national Jewish newspaper has opened its never-before-seen archives, revealing a photographic landscape of Jews in the twentieth century and beyond. This extraordinary volume features classic photographs of the history one has learned to associate with the Jewish Daily Forward--Lower East Side pushcarts, Yiddish theater, labor rallies--along with gems no one would expect. The book also features essays by Leon Wieseltier, Roger Kahn, and Deborah Lipstadt, and a rousing introduction by Pete Hamill.
Alana Newhouse is the Arts & Culture editor at the Forward. She lives in New York City.
