Published in 1896, this collection of essays and articles contains thirteen pieces, including "The Chassidim," "The Dogmas of Judaism, "Woman in Temple and Synagogue," and "The Earliest Jewish Community in Europe." The purpose of the first three essays in the book is to “bring under the notice of the English public a type of men produced by the Synagogue of the Eastern Jews,” as Western Synagogues breed an entirely different type of worship.
