Abstract:

"There has never been an authoritative history of New Zealand's Jewish population, and yet people of Jewish descent have played vital roles in all aspects of our society, throughout the nation's history; Auckland alone has had six Jewish mayors. Jews have been prominent in business, cultural, intellectual, political and medical life and more since the 1840s, and successive waves of immigration have added to the tapestry of New Zealand Jewry. In this landmark book, edited by Professor Leonard Bell and Diana Morrow, expert writers examine key fields of endeavour in which Jewish New Zealanders have distinguished themselves. They are fascinating and significant New Zealanders, who have given hugely to our nation."--Back cover.
