‘Manoim’s book, meticulously researched and compulsively readable

(a rarity with institutional histories) fills a glaring gap in local Jewish historiography

[and] sheds light on a movement ... which has been greatly under-valued in terms of

the impact it made on the Jewish religious and communal scene.’

David Saks, Associate Director of the SA Jewish Board of Deputies and editor of Jewish Affairs
