About this title


This book is a turn-of-the-century memoir written by Nima H. Adlerblum. Filled with stories, vignettes, and parables, this book is both a coming-of-age memoir as well as an exploration of comparative theology. The book also offers an intimate portrait of Jerusalem a century ago.

From Library Journal:

Adlerblum, who died in 1974, was born near Jerusalem into a family of noted rabbis. Her grandparents emigrated from Lithuania in 1848 to form a Jewish colony in Palestine, and Nima spent her early childhood with them. The memoirs of her childhood included here are set in Safed and Jerusalem (where her family later moved) and include wonderfully nostalgic, anecdotal depictions of her home and family, playmates, local yeshiva boys and visiting rabbis, and the Palestinian countryside, all infused with an overriding love of the Torah and Jewish tradition (by the age of four, Nima was already fascinated with theological questions and religious debate). Later, she studied in the United States with John Dewey and formulated her own philosophy of Judaism, in which reason is interwoven with beliefs, emotions, and the romance of the Jewish being. This is a unique portrait of a Jewish girl's spiritual coming-of-age in a critical period of Israel's history. Highly recommended for young adults and for Judaica collections in general.AMarcia G.
