Page 98 - Jewish Book Annual Volume 12

Basic HTML Version

Surveys of the problems confronting the American Jewish com-
munity were prepared by experts concerned with the future of
Jewish leadership and group activity.
There has been a natural increase of Jewish devotional books,
combining the original Hebrew text with English translations, and
new translations of Maimonides’ code.
An important record of the work of the Jewish Publication
Society of America has been prepared giving complete biblio-
graphical information. This volume in itself could serve as a
barometer of the tastes and interests of American Jewish scholars
and the American Jewish community in the variety of books that
have been written and published in this country.
