Chattanooga is truly a city that reflects America’s diverse history, possessing a rich, antebellum heritage combined with the energy and determination of the many brave immigrants who transformed this area from a traditional Southern town into a cosmopolitan center of the New South. One of Chattanooga’s most important contributors, the Jewish
community has played an integral role in improving and diversifying the life and culture of this historic Tennessee town. In this volume of over 200 photographs, you will enjoy a celebration of the struggles, the stories of heroism and of common life, and the many successes of Chattanooga’s Jewish citizens. Touching upon all aspects of Jewish life, the Jewish Community of Chattanooga will take you on an exciting visual tour of the Jewish experience with beautiful and rare photographs of different Life Cycle events, Hebrew-oriented schools, such as the Jewish Day School, Jewish cemeteries, past and present-day synagogues, and its people, including many families, prominent businesspersons, special achievers, and community and civic leaders.
