Description:
(Tel-Aviv: Economic Research Institute of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, 1938). 248 x 172 mm; printed wrappers; pp. 214; graphs and tables in text.

"In surveying the economic situation in Palestine, the political background, both at home and abroad, must always be kept in mind. Political events exert a much more decisive influence on Palestine's economic life than is usual in other countries, owing to the special role which immigration and capital import play in Palestine's development. There are two sets of forces which compose this political background - the forces which repel Jewish population and capital away from their countries of origin, and cause them to turn to Palestine for refuge; and the forces which determine Palestine's attraction as a refuge for Jewish population and capital.

"Johannesburg Jewry is unique among Jewish communities throughout the world because its people joined with others to become the founders of a city. Numbering ten per cent of the white population from mining camp days in 1886 onwards, Jews made a significant contribution to the growth of Johannesburg. In Founders and Followers - Johannesburg Jewry 1887-1915, largely through biographies of personalities, various writers tell the story of the pioneers in the period from the founding of the first congregation in 1887 to 1915, when the two largest congregations amalgamated. From mining magnates to merchants, from politicians to… Read More
