"A brief record of experiences, facts and observations, covering a period of over a dozen years. " - Introduction. “Every phase of Jewish community life is taken up separately in this book - the synagogue, its leaders, its physically and mentally ill, its weddings and its funerals; all these and more are within the province of the rabbi and his wife. Their lives are one round of duties to the community and they seem to have as much privacy as gold fish.
