1.2 kg; XXVI, 438 pages, indexed, with bibliography, notes on sources, appendix, and glossary. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photographs, and facsimiles of documents. Colour illustrated dust jacket. The dust jacket has faded on the back strip section, from burnished cedar to a light bamboo; there is no other damage to describe. Signed in the lower right-hand quadrant of the front free end page to both authors. This congregation established just five years after the birth of Melbourne, was indeed to prove enduring. The foundation of Victorian Jewish life was to become its cornerstone. Its social contribution extends far beyond its membership to Australian society and the Jewish world as a whole. This book debunks the myth that Orthodox Judaism in Australia is a 20th-century phenomenon. Nevertheless, fluctuations in fortunes -- social, religious and economic, reflecting past and contemporary changes in surrounding society -- are stark reminders of the fragility of minority achievements in the shadow of a dominating ethos. This history provides a series of salutary lessons and a blueprint for the future." -- front fold over blurb. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s).
