Description

The title of this cookbook is “The Golden Jubilee Recipe Book.” Under the title on the cover, it states, “Celebrating 50 years of service. B’nai B’rith women.” The cover is gold, and there is a menorah on it as well as a crown of laurels surrounding the title. There is no one author, as the book is a compilation of recipes that the organization has been sent over the years by various people. However, the editor is Mary L. Goldstein, and the chairman is Mary E. Lourie. No biographical information is given about either of these women, nor any of the people who submitted recipes. The book is a compilation of recipes from earlier books by the same organization, which are referred to as the “1950,” “1952,” and “What’s Cooking” versions.
The book was published by the Women’s Donor Committee Metropolitan Council, B’nai B’rith in 1959. It was published in New York on 20 West 40th Street. There is not much indication of how the book was sold, however, it does mention that additional copies are available at $1.50 each. This suggests that this particular version may be significant, perhaps it is even an original print. There are 116 pages. The book is 21 ½ cm by 13 ½ cm, about the size of an average novel. It is mostly gold, beige, and black, with a black ring binding it together. It is a bit old but in very good condition. It is made of normal paper, with the cover and the back made of something thicker and sturdier. There are no signs of who the previous owner was, other than my own knowledge that it was owned by Norene Gilletz.
