About This Item

1934. AMR4, INBT, MEA . 8vo; 136 pages; "A brief record of experiences, facts and observations, covering a period of over a dozen years....At thirty-seven, my husband is physically disabled....The breaking of his health in the ministry does not make us bitter. " This is an ironic introduction to one of the angriest pre-Holocaust Jewish memoirs I have ever seen--This (Connecticut? ) Rebbezin spares no punches about the "men whose vanity and wealth deluded them to aspire to unmerited and autocratic leadership" and the "social-climbing and capricious women" she had to deal with in the Jewish community. She also writes about her and her husband's visits to jails to deal with Jewish prisoners and other work in and relations with the wider community. Not saccharine like so many memoirs. Ex library. Edges slightly worn, particularly ends of spine, very good condition. (AMR-41-2) .
