9780738512211: Jewish Community Under the Frankford El, The (PA) (Images of America)

In the late nineteenth century, a wave of Jewish immigrants fled eastern Europe and settled in northeastern Philadelphia along the Delaware River in Kensington and its surrounding neighborhoods. Separate from the German-Jewish community of Philadelphia, the new immigrants created new Jewish settlements that eventually gave way to permanent residences and businesses along Frankford Avenue, Kensington Avenue, Richmond Street, Front Street, Torresdale Avenue, and beyond. Synagogues, bakeries, delicatessens, kosher butchers, and other Jewish establishments flourished for several decades until the area began to decline in the 1960s as a result of the postindustrial era. The Jewish Community under the Frankford El celebrates the history of this Jewish community and the contributions Jews made, as merchants and citizens, to this highly integrated section of Philadelphia.

About the Author:

With the help of Carl Nathans, whose grandparents were founding pioneers in Kensington's Little Jerusalem, Allen Meyers has collected vintage photographs from the Frankford El Jewish community at large. Meyers, a graduate of Gratz Hebrew College, is an expert on Philadelphia's old Jewish neighborhoods and the author of four previous Arcadia volumes documenting the history of Jews in Philadelphia.
