This book explores and celebrates the origins of Newton, Massachusetts' oldest synagogue (105 years old) and the culture and the families who built new lives and a vibrant, still flourishing Jewish congregation in a neighborhood of Italian, Irish and French immigrants at the turn of the 20th century. The author is a granddaughter of the founder of the synagogue and a lifelong resident of Newton. She has served the congregation for over 30 years, including time as president, board secretary and chief fundraiser.
