Product Description

Discover how Orthodox Judaism rose from near oblivion to a significant influence in America!

The story of Orthodox growth in twentieth century America is one of struggle and determination, setbacks and near-miraculous victories. To understand the Orthodoxy of today, examine the roots of its resurgence in the first half of the twentieth century.

  • How did this “minority within a minority” of American Jews establish a cultural framework that carried them into the 21st century?
  • When and why did the Hebrew Day School movement take root?
  • What legal and moral battles were fought by a handful of activists who founded the Orthodox Union, the Young Israel movement and Agudath Israel?

At the heart of this wonderful volume are 52 biographical vignettes of leading figures of Orthodox Jewry. These are not only warm and exciting -- they bring to life the great struggles in American Jewish life and the courage, imagination, and conviction of the pioneering leaders and laymen.

Studded with hundreds of fascinating historical photos, biographical vignettes and a glossary of Hebrew terms, this book that will explain the mystery of Orthodox vibrancy to every Jew.

8 1/2" x 11" Coffe-table Gift Edition. A meaningful and illuminating gift!
