The book contains more than 200 vintage photos, some of which have never been published before.

For more information about Pittsburgh’s Jewish history and to order Dr. Burstin’s books online, go to her website, pittsburghjewishhistory.com. Dr. Burstin will give a presentation about Jewish Pittsburgh at the SHHS meeting in September 2016.
