"Chicago is a city with cold winters and hot summers. Although it has a sad history of corrupt civic politicians, it has given us our present president and it has been generally hospitable to a vibrant Jewish community. The saga of that community is well told in this excellent presentation." Jerusalem Post , July 2009
