Review:

"This bold, well-researched and beautifully-illustrated history of New York's Jews (1654-1865) introduces the theme of republicanism into American Jewish history, and properly contextualizes Jews within the larger history of the metropolis. A remarkable accomplishment, Haven of Liberty will stand for years to come as the definitive history of New York City's early Jewish community."-Jonathan D. Sarna,Joseph H. & Belle R. Braun Professor of American Jewish History, Brandeis University

"[...] Haven of Liberty is an expertly researched book written in fluid and engaging prose.  It also includes a stunning visual essay by Diana L. Linden on the material culture of the city’s early Jewish community with thirty-two images.  Rock’s book is highly recommended reading, not just for students of modern Jewish history, but for all scholars interested in religion’s role in the development of American culture.”-Journal of the Early Republic

"Covers its chronological sweep so smoothly that readers may not immediately realize how many cultures, times, and decades they have crossed in 250 pages. . . . Deftly integrates biographical sketches into a larger cultural and political account and provides a human dimension exploring differences between the colonial Jewish community and the already varied communities of the early national and antebellum eras."-Jon Butler,The American Jewish Archives Journal
