A Jewish Life on Three Continents

This chapter, which recounts the engrossing story of the Frieden family’s journey from Norfolk to Jerusalem and of its initial adjustment to the Land of Israel, is both one of the most compelling sections of Menachem Mendel Frieden’s narrative and one of the richest in terms of its description of the world in which Frieden lived. The detailed information conveyed in this chapter not only enlivens Frieden’s story, but also allows us to expand our understanding of the nature of travel in the early 1920s, of economic conditions in post–World War I Palestine, of reactions to the Arab riots of the period, and of many other matters as well.

Keywords:   migration, aliya, ship travel, Jerusalem, housing conditions, Hebrew language, schooling, cigarette manufacturing, Arab riots
