Pictures of Jewish Home-Life Fifty Years Ago

Pictures of Jewish Home-Life Fifty Years Ago by Hannah Trager
By: (1870-1943)

In each chapter, Mr. Jacobs reads a letter from his cousins living in Jerusalem many years earlier, each one teaching his family and friends about a different holiday or tradition of their people.
