Professor William B. Helmreich is a professor of sociology "at the City College of New York and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York." He is also a published author (14 books as of 2013).
He published a sociology work in 1979 titled "Old Wine in New Bottles: Advanced Yeshivot in the United States".
The City University of New York website lists Helmreich as "Distinguished Professor" and lists his areas of specialization as "race and ethnic relations, religion, immigration, risk behavior, the sociology of New York City, urban sociology, consumer behavior and market research."
European-born (1945) Helmreich "was brought to this country as an infant" by his Holocaust-survivor parents. He wrote about his growing up years in a book he named "Wake Up, Wake Up, to Do the Work of the Creator" (a phrase, spoken in Yiddish, by those who went house-to-house to awaken worshippers for daily prayer).
