So, where was the Jewish community in 1910? Some of us may think of it as a simpler time, and in some senses, it was. A very different Jewish Exponent reached readers' doorsteps back in the first week of January. (An interesting sidelight: The first Exponent of 1910 was dated Jan. 7, just as it will be next week.)Substantial issues were relegated to just four pages at dead center, beginning with the editorials. The lead unsigned piece began: "It is very generally assumed in current discussion that the complaint as to the present-day dominance of the spirit of materialism over the religious sentiment is even more applicable to the Jewish people than it is to their neighbors of other faiths."
