Himmelfarb, Milton, Ed.; And Others
This 1982 yearbook reviews developments in areas of concern to Jews around the world. The volume features an essay that provides a comprehensive chronicle of American Jews from the perspectives of both Jewish history and American history. Developments in the United States are examined in articles that discuss civil and political issues that affect Jews in the United States, Israel and the Middle East; family and communal patterns of American Jews and Soviet Jews in the United States; and demographic trends among the Jewish American population. Jewish life around the world is described in a series of articles dealing with Canada, Israel, Great Britain, France, Germany, the Soviet Union, Poland, Hungary, Rumania, Israel, South Africa, and Australia. New estimates of the world Jewish population are provided. Also included are directories of national Jewish organizations, periodicals, and federations and welfare funds, as well as religious calendars and obituary notices. (Author/MJL)
