  • “Separated from us as far as West is from East”: Eighteenth-Century
           Ashkenazi Immigrants in the Atlantic World
    • Abstract: In 1758, Barnard Gratz wrote a letter to his London-based cousin Solomon Henry to discuss his brother’s prospects. Gratz had just learned that his younger brother Michael was en route from the East Indies, where he had been a clerk or a servant to a merchant, to London. He proposed that Michael join him in Philadelphia where he could “keep a shop here in the Country,” Gratz wrote, “or else [live] here at Mr David Franks’s in my place where he would have as good a man for his Master as Possible . . . & learn the business of this country by staying with him 2 or 3 years for wages in his store.”1 Barnard had arrived only four years earlier, at the age of seventeen. He had the good fortune to find employment as a clerk ... Read More

  • Jews and the Fur Trade along the Southern British Colonial Borderlands
    • Abstract: This essay introduces a hitherto neglected economic niche in the southern colonies of the Britain’s North American empire—the fur trade—that a small but important group of Jews entered. Since Jewish trade with native nations has been explored in the northern colonies, that literature will be summarized and used for comparison with the experience in the South to discern crucial patterns. Yet the few works available on the trade nexus in the North are descriptive narratives. Thus this study represents the first analytic synthesis concerning the subject in its broadest framework in British colonial America. This is also one of the few economic studies to cover the Jewish experience in the British colonial North and ... Read More

  • Shadarim in the Colonial Americas: Agents of Inter-Communal Connectivity
           and Rabbinic Authority
    • Abstract: The Ottoman Empire rapidly decentralized following its defeat at the gates of Vienna in 1683. During the eighteenth century, local strongmen filled the power vacuum in frontier settings such as Palestine. These Beys, with the power to collect tax revenue, found an easily exploitable population in the small Jewish communities of Jerusalem, Hebron, Tiberius, and Safed.2 Local Ottoman rulers terrorized these Jewish communities through high taxation and extortion. The instability of the environment itself added additional stresses to communal life in Palestine. Over the course of the eighteenth century, fires and natural disasters, such as the Levantine earthquake of 1759, plagued the region. To alleviate their plight ... Read More

  • “To prove the correctness and authenticity of my statements”: Solomon
           Nunes Carvalho’s Revision of the Western Travel Narrative
    • Abstract: Solomon Nunes Carvalho was thirty-eight years old when he accepted John C. Frémont’s invitation to undertake a midwinter crossing of the Far West from Kansas to California as the expedition’s official daguerreotypist.2 The famous explorer’s achievement of safe passage through the worst imaginable conditions in the western wilderness would ascertain the viability of his proposed transcontinental railway route and enhance his prospects as a political figure on the national stage.3 While Frémont was an old hand at wilderness exploration, Carvalho was an urbane scion of the Jewish middle class, unschooled in the art of outdoor survival. Born in Charleston, South Carolina, he had spent most of his youth in Philadelphia ... Read More

  • Heimat and Home: Mobility Among Jews in Quincy, Illinois
    • Abstract: The study of Jewish migration is often marked by an artificial barrier: historians of Europe have typically followed Jews to their ports of departure and their scholarly counterparts in America have only focused on their lives after disembarkation. Both groups of historians have tended to present the nineteenth-century Atlantic Ocean as a one-way passage, rather than as a pathway traversed in both directions. This view, however, is at odds with more recent research that points to how Jews maintained ties on both continents and returned to Europe more often than hitherto thought. Far from presenting the picture of Jewish migration as merely channeling people from one continent to another, this work illustrates the ... Read More

  • Appendix: Methodology: Heimat and Home: Mobility Among Jews in Quincy,
           Illinois
    • Abstract: Cynthia Francis Gensheimer relied on many sources to compile a census of Jews who lived in Quincy, Illinois, during the nineteenth century.1 Quincy’s records provide an unusually complete portrait of its Jews, including those who struggled. Gensheimer found names in the minute book of a Hebrew ladies’ benevolent society; an early roster of B’nai B’rith members; the diary of Rabbi Elias Eppstein, who served Quincy from 1890 to 1906; and congregational records and correspondence. Jewish and city newspapers described the community and family relationships. Descendants of Quincy’s Jews shared letters, scrapbooks, family lore, and genealogies. Gensheimer traveled to the German hometowns of some of Quincy’s Jewish ... Read More

  • State of the Field: Jews & Others
    • Abstract: In the mid-1990s, when I began to examine western Jewish responses to WWII-era removal and incarceration of Japanese Americans, I expected to find Jews prominent among those who recognized and protested the racism of that wartime policy. 1 Looking for evidence of Jewish opposition, I turned to the records of organizations engaged in what was then called inter-group work. Instead of uncovering opposition, I was surprised to discover that a prominent Jewish civil rights organization in Los Angeles secretly collaborated in disseminating anti-Japanese American propaganda, while most West Coast Jewish groups and individuals remained silent.2 My assumption that Jews would have, or should have, played a key role in ...

  • On the Edge of the Holocaust: The Shoah in Latin American Literature and
           Culture by Edna Aizenberg (review)
    • Abstract: On the Edge of the Holocaust brings us a study of five Latin American writers who were contemporary to the Holocaust and who represented the Shoah both in written and visual culture. Using the works of Jorge Luis Borges, Clarice Lispector, Alberto Gerchunoff, João Guimarães Rosa, and Gabriela Mistral, Edna Aizenberg’s objectives are two-fold: to show how these authors, in dealing with the Shoah, challenged “prevailing truths about Latin American literature from that period” and also to restore these world-class writers to a place among the many others who openly criticized and resisted, in their own ways, Nazi atrocities (x). These authors, Edna Aizenberg explains, wrote at a time when Latin American writers were ... Read More

  • Jewish Justices of the Supreme Court: From Brandeis to Kagan by David G.
           Dalin (review)
    • Abstract: The eight Jews who have been appointed to the US Supreme Court personify Jewish political power and/or professional success. David G. Dalin never says as much, but it is presumably this supposition that inspired his book Jewish Justices of the Supreme Court: From Brandeis to Kagan. This work spotlights the Jews who have served or currently serve on America’s highest court. Dalin’s book proceeds chronologically. Chapter One examines presidents’ appointment of Jewish lawyers to less prominent posts. The eight subsequent chapters discuss the justices’ careers and relationships with the presidents who appointed them and then assess their Jewish legacies.Scholarship about American Jewish legal practitioners can be ...

  • Media and Culture in the U.S. Jewish Labor Movement: Sweating for
           Democracy in the Interwar Era by Brian Dolber (review)
    • Abstract: The 1920s and 1930s witnessed the consolidation of modern America as a consumer society. During these decades, the motion picture, the automobile, and consumer durables for the home such as the radio and the washing machine were regularly advertised in a growing number of national journals and newspapers. What did the spread of mass consumption, mass media, and mass culture mean for democracy in America'The transformation of America into a consumer culture in the first decades of the twentieth century was the central question addressed by Robert and Helen Lynd in Middletown: A Study in Modern American Culture, their early 1920s field investigation of Muncie, Indiana. The Lynds viewed the authority achieved by ... Read More

  • Who Rules the Synagogue' Religious Authority and the Formation of
           American Judaism by Zev Eleff (review)
    • Abstract: The earliest American synagogues were created by immigrants hoping to sustain Jewish ritual, practice, and community in a new environment. As the number of Jews in the United States grew (from around 5000 in 1820 to approximately 250,000 in 1880), and as the social and economic status of one-time new immigrants trended upward and solidified, expectations for their public religious lives transformed accordingly. As synagogue communities evolved to meet the needs of Americanizing Jews, so did expectations for the men invested with congregational leadership.By the mid-nineteenth century, Jews in numerous American cities had organized themselves into congregations, often hiring functionaries to lead services, slaughter ...

  • City on a Hilltop: American Jews and the Israeli Settler Movement by Sara
           Yael Hirschhorn (review)
    • Abstract: There are about 350,000 Jews living in Israel’s West Bank settlements, and about 60,000 of them were born in the United States. Their American-born settlers’ influence, however, exceeds their actual proportion of the population there. They explain their activism in the language of “human rights” or “worship rights,” and they describe their settlements to others as places where one can find “quality of life” similar to the American suburbs. How do people who move to contested and violent locations next to occupied Palestinians can still refer to themselves as liberals' This paradox is in the heart of Sara Yael Hirschhorn’s new book.In the introduction, Hirschhorn offers some interesting data: most of the new ...

  • A Vanished Ideology: Essays on the Jewish Communist Movement in the
           English-Speaking World in the Twentieth Century ed. by Matthew B. Hoffman,
           Henry F. Srebrnik (review)
    • Abstract: Insofar as the image of the Ẓydokomuna, or Jewish Communist, has constituted a core trope of modern antisemitism, it is hardly surprising that historians of the Jewish experience have shied away from the topic of Jewish participation in the global Communist movement. Relegated to the margins of inquiry during the era of Cold War Liberal consensus, Jewish involvement in the Communist movement—particularly within the United States—has most frequently been treated in apologetic, evasive, or condemnatory tones. In light of this, Matthew Hoffman and Henry Srebrnik’s illuminating and nuanced edited volume stands as a welcome, original, and necessary contribution to the study of global Jewish political radicalism.The ...
