Description
   A yearbook of the Jewish community in Tunisia. It contains write-ups of the major Jewish organizations, articles about the Jewish holidays and how they were celebrated, a list of certified mohels, and numerous advertisements for local establishments which offers the reader an insight into community life in Tunisia in 1955. This volume is written almost entirely in French except for the very last article about Jewish folklore which is written in Latin characters but is not readily recognizable.
