For more than eighty years the Jewish Daily Forward's legendary advice column "A Bintel Brief" ("a bundle of letters") dispensed shrewd, practical, and fair-minded advice to its readers. The column also gave them a forum for seeking advice and support regarding everything from family squabbles to heart wrenching spiritual dilemmas to hilarious predicaments of the Old World meeting the New. Now, more than sixty years of letters are gathered in this remarkable oral history, giving readers a view not only of the varied problems of Jewish immigrant life in America, but also of the catastrophic events of the first half of the century.
