Synopsis: Americans recently celebrated the 350th anniversary of the first Jewish settlement in America. From Haven to Home marks this important occasion by bringing together an eminent group of Judaic scholars who take stock of American Jewish life, from the arrival of the first small group in Manhattan in 1654 to the present.
The contributors examine a wide range of topics, including the early history of the American Jewish community and the various significant phases of Jewish immigration, which saw the initial group of twenty-three burgeon into a thriving community of several million by the early twentieth century. Also addressed is the role and presence of Jews in the Civil War and in World War II, anti-Semitism in America, the daily life and struggles of American Jewish women, and American Jews and politics. The essays are amply illustrated with items from the rich collection of the Library of Congress's Hebraic Section, among them the first Hebrew bible printed in America and the first Yiddish American cookbook, as well as selections of photographs, prints, diaries, maps, and sheet music.
Central to the Jewish experience in America is that country's commitment to ideals of freedom, opportunity, religious liberty, equality, and pluralism. The continuity of the faith, in fact, depends on it. From Haven to Home—the story of Jews in America—is therefore also the story of America and American ideals. 100 color illustrations.
About the Author: Michael W. Grunberger is Head of the Hebraic Section at the Library of Congress, where he has curated such exhibits as "Zion's Call" and "Scrolls from the Dead Sea: The Ancient Library of Qumran and Modern Scholarship." He lives in Washington, D.C.
