Michael Kaufman's In One Era, Out the Other is a moving and poignant story of an individual, a community, and yes, an era. It is a brilliantly crafted portrait of a wonderful world that was, bringing to life the Catskills and mid-20th century Williamsburg, an original shtetl in the heart of New York, which with its towering Torah personalities and its colorful poshiteh Yidden has exerted such an extraordinary impact upon the American Jewry of our day.
The author's wide-ranging activities in Jewish life in America and Israel provide the backdrop for vivid vignettes of some of the legendary Jewish personalities of the period, ranging from Rabbis Aharon Kotler, Shraga Feivel Mendlowitz and the Satmar and Klausenberger Rebbes, to Irving Bunim and Rabbis Meir Kahane and Shlomo Catrlebach. An amazing insight in to American Jewry...where it began...where it's heading. A blockbuster-not to be missed!
