- Eretz Yisrael from 1934 to 2000 through the Eyes and Pen of a Young Girl Growing Up amidst Turbulent Times
- An expansion of the diary that Ayalah Rottenberg Ahas kept for over sixty-five years, Echoes of Yesteryear takes us from Sighet, Romania, to Little Tel Aviv of 1934 and beyond. We experience the first Bais Yaakov in Tel Aviv, pre- and post-World War II Eretz Yisrael and Europe, and the days of Israel's War of Independence - all through the eyes and pen of a young religious woman. We experience first-hand the absorption of war orphans into British Mandatory Palestine, and the groundbreaking well as backbreaking and heartbreaking - efforts of the Torah community to establish itself in the "New Yishuv." Echoes of Yesteryear is a must for everyone as interested in a true of account of the turbulent history of Eretz Yisrael in our time.
- "Mrs. Rottenberg has done the Torah world an incalculable service by writing a fascinating documentary of the beginnings of the Bais Yaakov movement in Eretz Yisrael, from its growing pains and setbacks to its eventual success....A realistic look at the struggles of the religious community, [and] the often overwhelming adversity it faced in those early years....[The book's] educational value...cannot be overstated.
- "Echoes of Yesteryear is full of keystone events....[This] important documentary is very poignant, moving, and absorbing."
- "The turbulence of the times and the humanity of those who navigated what were anything but 'still waters' make this book hard to put down."
- "[These] diaries are a signpost and a memorial beacon of events that have transpired in our history..."
