This trilogy contains the translation of three historical works written by the late I. Kara covering the important Jewish communities of Bacau, Iasi, and Podu Iloaies in Romania. Born in 1906 Kara was a noted Yiddish scholar and lived until 2001. These works were originally written in Romanian and published by Hasefer Publishing House, Bucharest. This volume provides the researcher and the descendants of the three towns with insight into these communities. Also included are two essays by people who had met I. Kara in his later years and images of the recent restoration of the Great Synagogue of Iasi.

It is the desire of the Yizkor-Books-In-Print project of that this new compilation of material in English serve as a fitting memorial for these three Jewish Communities.
