9781609493486: Stories from Jewish Portland (American Heritage)

These are the stories of Jewish Portland, whose roots stretch back to the Gold Rush, whose heart is 'the old neighborhood' of South Portland and the memories of its residents, whose identity is alive and well in synagogues and community institutions. Portland author Polina Olsen recounts the history of this richly layered community through a collection of letters, interviews, and stories drawn from her series "Looking Back," published in The Jewish Review. In this expanded collection, explore the lives of early settlers brought by opportunity and New York's Industrial Removal Office, walk the streets of the old neighborhood, alive with basketball games and junk peddlers, and learn the proud history of institutions like the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland, which continue the cultural traditions of Jewish Portland.

About the Author:

Polina Olsen writes a "Looking Back" column for the Jewish Review newspaper and contributes to several local and national publications. Her three previous books, A Walking Tour of Historic Jewish Portland, The Immigrants' Children, Jewish and Italian Memories of Old South Portland and The Downtown Jews: A Walking Tour through Portland s Early Business District, have been well received. She also leads walking tours of the historic Jewish and Italian immigrant district during the summer months.
