The Jewish zone of latest York is mostly alleged to be a spot of poverty, dust, lack of knowledge and immorality—the seat of the sweat-shop, the tenement condo, the place "red-lights" sparkle at evening, the place the folk are queer and repulsive. Well-to-do individuals stopover at the "Ghetto" basically from explanations of interest or philanthropy; writers deal with of it "sociologically," as of a spot in crying desire of improvement.
That the Ghetto has a nasty point is as precise because it is trite. however the disagreeable point isn't the topic of the next sketches. i used to be ended in spend a lot time in convinced bad hotels of Yiddish big apple no longer via causes both philanthropic or sociological, yet just by advantage of the appeal I felt in males and issues there. East Canal highway and the Bowery have me greater than Broadway and 5th road. Why, the reader may perhaps examine from the current volume—which is an try out made by means of a "Gentile" to document sympathetically at the personality, lives and targets of convinced east-side Jews with whom he has been in relatives of substantial intimacy.
THE outdated MAN
No a part of big apple has a extra extreme and sundry lifestyles than the colony of Russian and Galician Jews who live to tell the tale the east facet and who shape the biggest Jewish urban on the earth. The outdated and the recent come right here into shut touch and throw one another into excessive aid. The traditions and customs of the orthodox Jew are maintained virtually of their purity, and against those are types and concepts of contemporary lifetime of the main severe sort. The Jews are immediately tenacious in their personality and vulnerable to their Gentile surroundings, while that setting is of a excessive order of civilization. therefore, in enlightened the USA they endure fast transformation tho maintaining a lot that's specific; whereas in Russia, surrounded by way of an ignorant peasantry, they continue to be by means of themselves, don't so mostly study the Gentile language, and like their very own sorts of tradition. There their existence centres approximately faith. Prayer and the research of "the legislations" represent virtually the full lifetime of the non secular Jew.
