Excerpt from The American Jewish Year Book, 5666: September 30, 1905, to September 19, 1906
The last instalment of the Biographical Sketches appears this year. The three series, incomplete though they have been, have demonstrated the presence in America of an amount of Jewish personality and achievement hitherto un suspected, and they point out the desirability of further work and publication in American Jewish biography.
The Palestine Bibliography is inserted in continuance of the policy inaugurated last year with The Hundred Best Available Books in English on Jewish Subjects. It is thought that by presenting such lists of accessible books on subjects 'of Jewish interest, the year book is exercising the legitimate function of aiding the educational leaders of the communities, as in other departments it aims to give help to other communal leaders. The same purpose will, it is hoped, be served by the Syllabus on p. 163. While it incidentally sums up the contribution to english-jewish literature by the society issuing the year book, it is designed to be use ful to Sabbath School teachers, Chautauqua Circles, and Study Sections of the Council of Jewish Women.
