Synopsis: For many years Chicago had the third largest Jewish
population of any city in the world. Through the medium of historic photographs, this book captures the remarkable evolution of the Jewish people of Chicago, from their immigrant beginnings in the 1840s to their present-day communities. It is a story of the cultural, religious, economic, and everyday life of Chicago’s Jews. These pages bring to life the people, events, neighborhoods, and institutions that helped shape and transform today’s Jewish community. The photos and maps, culled from the author’s and other collections, paint a vivid and informative picture of Chicago Jewry. In addition to recalling the early immigrant German and later Eastern European Jews, this book delves into Jewish neighborhoods including the West Side, South Side, North Side, suburban communities, and Maxwell Street, a neighborhood which produced such prominent Jews as musician Benny Goodman, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Arthur Goldberg, Admiral Hyman Rickover, community organizer Saul Alinsky, and CBS founder William Paley. Chicago Jews have also made contributions to the city and the nation in the arts,
commerce and industry, government service, entertainment, and labor, including seven Nobel prize winners. The images show Jews as peddlers and sweatshop workers as well as successful business entrepreneurs and professionals.

About the Author: Dr. Irving Cutler, the retired chairman of the Geography Department at Chicago State University, is a founding member of the Chicago Jewish Historical Society. He has given many tours and talks on Jewish Chicago and has been the curator of two major Jewish exhibits in the city. He is the author of numerous books and articles, including the award-winning The Jews of Chicago: From Shtetl to Suburb. Join Dr. Cutler on a fascinating visual journey into the historic Jewish community of Chicago.
