About this Item

1st Edition. Original Wrappers. 8vo. 23 pages ; 24 cm. In English. A monthly publication that ran for about 3 years. The publication was edited by Judah Leon Magnes. Magnes (1877 1948) was a prominent Reform rabbi in both the United States and Mandatory Palestine. He is best remembered as a leader in the pacifist movement of the World War I period, his advocacy of a binational Jewish-Arab state in Palestine, and as one of the most widely recognized voices of 20th century American Reform Judaism. " The Review was Magnes first American publication, long before he gained national fame. Originally, from San Francisco, Magnes moved to New York and "set himself the task of uniting the Jewish communities. In 1880 the city contained around 50, 000 Jews mostly of German origin. By 1900 there were nearly a million Jews, most coming from what is now Poland, Hungary, Romania, Belarus and Ukraine, making it the largest Jewish population in the world. " (Wikipedia, 2016) This issue of "The Review" is from April 1906. Articles provide a sketch of Jewish life in Brooklyn in the early 20th century. Includes a piece called, "A Short History of Brownsville, " which outlines Jewish poverty in the historic East Brooklyn neighborhood. Also includes a list of local Jewish publications, Brooklyn Synagogues, Educational Societies, and Benevolent Societies. Period Ads throughout. Very rare. OCLC lists just 1 copy worldwide (HUC) . Edgewear with tears. One word effected on cover page. Bottom right of every page is folded over. Text is bright and readable. About good condition. (AMR-49-7) Amer6, period1.
