Folio, 34 by 25 cm. 16 pp., including wraps -- front and rear cover counted as pages. The bi-weekly had a scathing view of Reform Judaism, which it dismisses as "man-made theology and whose members it calls "pseudo-Zionists". Yet the periodical also seems smitten with the "Jewish Science Movement", reported in this issue, which was an attempt to address and meld aspects of Christian Science with Judaism. While happenings to the American and European Jewish communities receive a good amount of space, there are also China-specific pieces, such as a plug for a book about the Harbin Jewish community. Among the interesting articles is one that addresses anti-Semitism in Japan, where there were fewer than 700 Jews. The advertisements also hold a considerable amount of interest. Not all of them are so easy to pick out on first glance, as some resemble short articles. The publication was first issued in 1904, ceased in 1910, resumed in 1918 and then continued til 1941. Any issue of it represents a scarce relic from the then vibrant Shanghai Jewish community. Soiling of the wraps. Dog-eared corners. Other general wear. Bookseller Inventory #
