1 Alofsin, Dorothy The Stream of Jewish Life [revised ed.]
New York Union of American Hebrew Congregations 1947 4th printing Hardcover Near Fine 
(decorated cloth; no dust jacket) [nice solid copy, very clean, minimal shelfwear]. (B&W photographs) Published by the Union of American Hebrew Congregations; publication "made possible by the establishment of a fund for the publication of Jewish religious school literature by the National Federation of Temple Sisterhood." Very nice copy of the revised edition of this picaresque look at modern-day American Jewish life and institutions, as high-school sophomore Jerry accompanies his Uncle Saul (a successful author visiting from London) on a road trip along the Eastern Seaboard (with much time spent in New York City and environs). Post-war revision of a book originally published in 1943, this version containing much discussion of Zionism and of the vital Jewish issue of the day, namely the resettlement of Palestine. There is some passing discussion of anti-semitism, but only the most oblique references to the horrors of the Holocaust (and no index entries for Hitler, although his name pops up here and there in the text).
