Opinion

From Library Staff

A poignant story of the struggles, heartbreaks and possibilities in the lives of early Jewish immigrants as told through the advice column of the Yiddish newspaper 'The Forward.'

A lovely, little gem of a book that takes you into the hearts and minds of immigrants trying to assimilate into the new world.

Taken from a "lonely hearts" column in a Brooklyn newspaper from turn of the last century, these letters show the loneliness and challenges immigrants faced coming to the U.S.
