Arcadia publishes narrowly focused books on specific communities and institutions. Their publications are not the best scholarship apologies to Simon Bronner, Fred Isaac and others I know to be fine scholars. However, they are generally either the only books on their subjects or the single largest collection of photographic images on their subject.
These are popular books with readers. They're fun. For Jewish libraries we recommend strong coverage. We have updated this list as of February, Commentary is primarily the publishers copy. My own remarks are added in and tend to be noticeably terser. The list below includes new titles and newly reprinted titl es. It was originally divided into two parts.
The second part - Community histories with significant Jewish aspects - includes titles that would be appropriate for individuals and libraries with a very in depth interest in the specific communities or institutions or an interest in complete coverage of Jewish history and geography has now been separated into a separate post that can be found here. These items may or may not be listed on our website on any given day. If you are interested in ordering please either call or email boychik hollanderbooks.

Our joint tenancy with St. John's had ended, our full-time Rabbi was here, our first President, Harold Sandak had been elected and our religious school was in operation.
