Congregation Emanu-El's portrait has been painted here in a broad canvas of a momentous century and a half of world Jewish History. Waves of immigration, the changing posture of the Reform movement, the response to the Holocaust, the acrimonious debate over the birth of Israel, and, in recent decades, the reaction to alternative expression of Judaism are among the many important themes that shape this richly textured narrative.
