Dear friends,

Please join me for the new opening of the Czernowitz Book Corner and enjoy the outstanding introductory exhibit "JUBILEE EDITION DEDICATED TO THE 60th ANNIVERSARY OF THE TEMPLE" [Editia festiva inchinata jubileului de 60 de ani dela inaugurarea Templului], Chanukah 5698 / November 28, 1937 at:


- Have you ever seen "Interior Views of the Temple" before its devastation in 1941?
- Do you recognize the members of the "Jewish Community Council in 1877" and/or in 1937?
- Do you want to learn more "About the Origins of the Community Temple"?
- Do you identify your ancestors among "The Names of the Hundred who Built the House of God"?
- Do you know all "The Cantors Since the Foundation of the Temple"?
- Do you know all "The Rabbis of the Jewish Community of Czernowitz"?
- Are you interested in "The Temple and its Visitors"?
- Do you feel the mood and cherish "The Soul of our Temple"?

Visit the Czernowitz Book Corner, download the original PDF copy or its Romanian/German transcription of this thoroughly illustrated book and admire its uniqueness! This book appears both on the "Tentative List of Jewish Cultural Treasures in Axis-Occupied Countries, 1946" by the Commission on European Jewish Cultural Reconstruction, and on our "EHPES Czernowitz / Bukovina Reading List" as well, but there is only one evidenced copy which survived, brought to all of you by courtesy of the National Library of Israel.

I strongly believe this book is not less significant for the Jews from Bukovina than Hugo Gold's "History of the Jews in Bukovina" and - somehow, sometime - we do have to find an opportunity to get it translated into English. However, in a first step, we transcribed it in order to make it processable by GoogleTranslate, but this isn't much more than a temporary compromise. Therefore,

- for all those, who read Romanian/German: Read, read, read!
- for all those, who don't read Romanian/German: Download the transcription and use GoogleTranslate!
- for all those, who read Romanian/German/English: Please donate your translation to all of us!

I'm checking out now for departure - as always by motorcycle - to Poland, Ukraine and Romania, but I'm encouraging you to bookmark the website for the Czernowitz Book Corner, since more Czernowitz / Bukovina related books will follow soon!
