Jewish Life in Pennsylvania
Dianne Ashton (au); Murray Friedman (fr)
Over the last 350 years, two million Jews emigrated to America from eastern & central Europe & from the Caribbean. Once settled as Americans, they created new Jewish religious, cultural, & charitable assoc. that fit the American experience. When Britain took the port of Phila. & territory around the Delaware River from Holland in 1664, it promised “liberty of conscience in church discipline” to settlers. From then on, Jewish traders could travel & live freely in PA. Contents of this study: Exploring Freedom: Jews in Colonial PA; Reshaping Jewish Life in Antebellum PA: Dividing & Uniting; Immigration & the Growth of Reform; 1880-1900: Immigration from Eastern Europe Increases; Shifting Crises: PA Jewry Before & After WW2; PA Population Table.
