From Library Journal:

How do you measure the strength of a community? By examining its communal institutions, you can see how the community is thriving. Friedman (Reconstructionist Rabbinical Coll.) here examines a key episode in American Jewish social history: the building of orphanages, an attempt to deal with a large problem in a thorough manner by replacing the almshouses and the disorganized efforts of times past. The Jewish orphanages expanded as the waves of Eastern European immigrants swelled, providing refuge and educational opportunities and inculcating both Jewish and American values. This well-written work, based on a doctoral thesis, is recommended for libraries with strong Judaica and American studies collections.

Book Description Brandeis University Press, Hanover, NH, 1994. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Illustrated by Photographs (illustrator). First Edition. The large influx of Eastern European Jewish immigrants into the United States during the late 19th and early 20th centuries signaled a dramatic change not just in American society but also in the existing American Jewish community. As this population grew, so did the need to care for their orphaned, destitute, and abandoned children. Three representative orphanages are studied here - New York's Hebrew Orphanage Asylum, Philadelphia's Jewish Foster Home, and Cleveland's Jewish Orphan Asylum - placing them in the context of the Progressive movement as well as the evolving child welfare field in the United States. Interviews with orphanage alumni enable the author to show that these institutions not only sheltered and educated their charges, but also instilled values intended to mold productive, loyal American citizens. While the institutions reflected traditional Jewish teachings, the same philosophies that enabled children to embrace life in the New World frequently caused estrangement from their natural parents and the Old World cultures of their families. 298 pages with index, notes, and bibliography. 6 1/4" x 9 1/4.
