The Jews of Illinois - Read The Reform Advocate

I love reading old books, newspapers and magazines. Recently, a pal sent me a link to an archive of periodicals long lost. The Online Library is the source.

One of the most striking and thoughtful is The Reform Advocate and English magazine published by Bloch and Neuman on Dearborn Street and Edited by Dr. Emil Hirsch. Click my post title and read the issue in full on the webiste.

The comon sense and clarity of the writing is wonderful (especiallially the editorial warning on the looming Prohibition laws)and the advertisements are great.
