"In perhaps the most ambitious history of an American Jewish congregation ever undertaken, Fred Rosenbaum... tells the story of how a small congregation became a major institution in American Jewish Life," Moses Rischin. Fred Rosenbaum pushes the limits of what congregation histories can be by fearlessly offer a critique instead of a tribute, allowing those who are not insiders a sober glimpse warts and all.
