Description
 
When Columbus arrived in the Americas with six Jews on board his ship, who would have dreamed that the Jewish population in America would go on to be one of such size and influence in the centuries to come? Here is the story of the three waves of Jewish persecution and immigration from different parts of the world (S. America, Germany, and E. Europe and Russia); by 1911, one quarter of Manhattan’s residents were Jewish. They brought with them their Yiddish culture and distinctive food, their strong work ethic and yearning for educ., and a determination to pull together in the face of anti-Semitism. Here are dozens of voices that relate the stories of their personal histories, their journeys, how they were received, and what they made of their lives in America. Illus.
