Synopsis: Book by Malamed, Sandra Cumings
From the Publisher: Old World Jews
Enriching the Culture of Their New-World Home
This book is about people—Myer Myers, the renown silversmith; Dr. John de Sequeyra, a colonial physician who studied mental illness in Colonial Williamsburg; Abigail Franks and Abigail Minis, two prominent Jewish women; Uriah Levy, who restored Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello; Solomon Carvalho, who photographed the American frontier with John Fremont. It tells how the Jews lived, how they made their livings, how they formed a community based on shared faith and common values, and how they interacted with and contributed to the rest of early American society.
In addition, the book contains an introduction placing this period in the context of the larger history of the Jewish diaspora, showing that the Jewish people who first came to America were part of the flight from the Spanish Inquisition by way of Holland.
Written to entertain and inform, The Jews in Early America will be of equal interest to adults and young adult readers. The book includes 96 photographs of people, artifacts, documents, and buildings drawn from Malamed’s collection with additions from the American Jewish Historical Society and other sources. Contains a bibliography and index.
