Title: The Streets of Jerusalem: Who, What, Why


Printer-Ready Page Layout
JewishPress Logo



        Ronald L. Eisenberg’s guide to the history of street names throughout the Holy City is an alphabetically arranged guide to Jewish history. Succinct entries provide data in a non-conversational manner, informing readers right away of the Biblical, Talmudic, medieval or modern-day figure for whom a given street is named.

 

         A city map of Jerusalem appears inside the front cover. It enables readers to match street names with locations and landmarks so that they can orient their discoveries and recollections into one cohesive “I am here (or there)” picture.

 

         This 407-page hardcover can amuse curiosity-seekers and make trivia experts informed. Easy-on-the-eyes text plus black and white photos of persons, places and things round out the educational endeavor.

 

         Readers will find it fun to experience the “ah-ha” effect as they recognize and appreciate the alleys, byways and highways wending their way through the book and their paths to destinations.

 

         Thanks to “The Streets of Jerusalem: Who, What, Why,” even the average layman will be able to perform as a bit of a tour guide with this fact-filled reference work.
