Modern urbanization is intimately linked with contemporary Jewish history, and this volume, the fifteenth in this acclaimed series, looks at the diverse connections. Spanning a wide range of topics, the volume includes essays on the Jewish communities in New York and St. Petersburg, on Orthodox Jews in the city, on Jewish-Christian relations within the urban context, on klezmer music, on the impact of urbanization on German Jewish history, and on the first "Hebrew city," Tel-Aviv. The volume also includes an extensive collection of reviews of recent literature on Jewish history, culture, and society
