By:Gershon Kranzler
List: $24.95
Price: $18.71
The collection of articles which comprise this warm and beautiful book were written over a period of four decades and reflect the author's close association with the people, institutions and organizations in the Williamsburg community since the late Thirties. The author, a prominent social historian and prolific Jewish writer, himself a member of the Williamsburg community for many years, draws on his memories to create some powerful and poignant vignettes of the people who touched his life during his years in Williamsburg. From the pages of "Williamsburg Memories" emerge many of the leaders and the people of Williamsburg who helped transform their community from a disintegrating immigrant ghetto into a major center of Orthodox, and eventually Chassidic, life. These include Reb Shraga Feivel Mendlowitz, Reb Gedalia Schorr, the Stoliner Rebbe, the Modzhitzer Rebbe, as well as prominent laymen such as Reb Shlomo Weiss, Dr. Naftoli Bursztyn, Reb Yisroel Rosenbaum and many others. There is also an extensive Special Section on the Satmar Rebbe. The book is further enhanced by two Pictorial Sections replete with history and nostalgia. "Williamsburg Memories" will find a special place in the hearts of all those people who passed through this community before moving on to other neighborhoods and cities. But it will also fascinate and inspire any Jewish reader with its masterful portrayals of great spiritual leaders, scholars, educators and ordinary people who made Williamsburg a cradle of faith, devotion and Mesiras Nefesh for Klal Gershon Kranzler
