  • Editors’ Introduction
    • Abstract: This issue of American Jewish History pays tribute to Jeffrey Gurock, marking forty years since he began teaching at Yeshiva University, his academic home throughout his distinguished career. As a prolific scholar of the American Jewish experience, and a mentor to younger peers, Gurock’s impact on the field is substantial, as we shall illustrate in this brief introduction.1Gurock grew up in the Bronx, New York, and attended Manhattan’s Ramaz Upper School, a pioneering Modern Orthodox institution that would make its way into the historian’s later scholarship. Afterward, he majored in History at City College, and in 1971 began graduate studies at Columbia University. There, he was part of a group of students who ... Read More

  • A Survey of Jewish History: An Early Representation of Orthodox
           Historiography on American Soil
    • Abstract: As the era of mass immigration came to a close during the early twentieth century, a cadre of English-speaking American Orthodox rabbis emerged. Mostly younger than their East European immigrant Orthodox colleagues, these rabbis shared the understanding that in order to secure the future and relevance of Orthodoxy in the “New World” it was essential to provide Orthodox religious and cultural content that could be consumed in English, rather than continue the dominant Yiddish-based immigrant religious culture. This manifested in synagogue life and ritual, for example, in sermons delivered in English, in the cultural and educational agenda adopted by Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary after its reorganization ...

  • Rabbi Haim Hirschensohn: An Orthodox Rabbi Responds to the Balfour
           Declaration
    • Abstract: The eminent modern Jewish philosopher Emil Fackenheim employed the phrase, “the Jewish return into History,” to contend that the success of political Zionism in creating the State of Israel after 1800 years of Exile and restoring national political sovereignty meant that an end had come to collective Jewish political passivity.2 Through the creation of modern Israel, the Jewish people as a national group had at long last returned to the arenas of history and power politics. As the Hebrew University scholar of Jewish Thought Eliezer Schweid has phrased it, the Jewish people, as a collective, now had “new responsibility—total and comprehensive—for a state, a society…That was the full scope of the change wrought by ...

  • Reverence and Integration: Boy Scouts, Jewish Camping and American
           Orthodoxy
    • Abstract: During my marathons I bonded with runners of all backgrounds… symbolic of my people’s position in America was the presence at a designated place for a prerace minyan at the marathon staging area—readily available, if I chose to attend. This Jewish place rested comfortably next to the Catholic Mass tent and the Protestant prayer area.1In 1947, Harold Jacobs (1912–1995) was president of the Young Israel of Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn. Among the activities sponsored by this then thriving Modern Orthodox synagogue was the “Shomer Shabbat” (Sabbath observant) Boy Scout Troop 404, whose ranks included two of Jacobs’ sons. Jacobs, who in subsequent years was to become a national lay leader of American Orthodoxy ... Read More

  • American Jewish Leaders and the North Africa Controversy of 1943: Applying
           the Gurock Principle
    • Abstract: After more than two years of persecution at the hands of the Vichy French colonial authorities, North Africa’s 330,000 Jews regarded the Allied conquest of the region in November 1942 as heaven-sent. Following a centuries-old custom of establishing local Purim-style celebrations to mark deliverance from catastrophe, the Jewish community of Casablanca declared the day of the Allied liberation “Hitler Purim” and created a “Megillat Hitler,” intertwining the tale of ancient Persia with their own experience of good fortune, complete with expressions such as “Cursed be Hitler, cursed be Mussolini.” It soon became clear, however, that the Allies had no intention of ending Vichy’s anti-Jewish practices any time soon. This ... Read More

  • Who Built New York': Jewish Builders in the Interwar Decades
    • Abstract: In 1925, an ambitious New York Jewish builder, Irwin Chanin, decided to visit Paris. Born in Brooklyn, Chanin had spent his youth in Poltava, Ukraine, before returning with his parents to settle in Bensonhurst.2 After graduating with an engineering degree in 1915 from Cooper Union, the city’s free architectural and engineering school, Chanin worked for several years on the New York and Philadelphia subways. When the United States declared war in 1917, he entered military service. During the war, Chanin helped construct poison gas facilities in Cleveland. Back in New York as a civilian, he built his first two single-family houses in Bensonhurst, scraping together capital for the project. This experience proved ... Read More

  • Signposts: Writing Women into American Jewish History
    • Abstract: It is most fitting that “Signposts: Reflections on Articles from the Journal’s Archive” appears in this special issue of American Jewish History (AJH) celebrating Jeffrey S. Gurock’s fortieth anniversary at Yeshiva University. After all, for twenty years (1982–2002), Jeffrey Gurock, Yeshiva University’s Libby M. Klaperman Professor of Jewish History, was the journal’s associate editor—one-half of a dynamic-duo editorial team with Marc Lee Raphael, the Nathan Gumenick Chair of Judaic Studies at the College of William & Mary, who was my teacher.Not only was Gurock editor extraordinaire, he was also deeply interested in the journal as a historical object. For more than a century, the writers who have published in the ... Read More

  • The Immigration Clause that Transformed Orthodox Judaism in the United
           States
    • Abstract: The 1921 Emergency Quota Act, Jeffrey Gurock has shown, ended “a century of constant unrestricted Jewish immigration” and inaugurated an era of “crisis and compromise” in American Orthodoxy. In the wake of drastic restrictions, directed especially at immigrants from Eastern Europe, the flow of Orthodox Jews into the United States slowed to a trickle. As a result, Gurock argues, the children of Orthodox immigrants (the “second generation”) came into their own, “with ears deaf to calls to return to tradition.”1 The numbers seem to bear out Gurock’s argument. Between 1903 and 1914, according to standard accounts, some 115,000 Jews immigrated annually into the United States. Between 1925 and 1934, that number dropped ... Read More

  • Federation Men: The Masculine World of New York Jewish Philanthropy,
           1880–1945
    • Abstract: Philanthropy, which one early twentieth-century social worker identified as a reflection of the Jewish “group will to live,” has served as a cornerstone of Jewish communal life since its inception.1 At least through the mid-twentieth century, the impetus to care for Jews in need bound the American Jewish community together in ways that nothing else could. Philanthropy did not erase intra-ethnic tensions, but it transcended class and religious divisions to a greater extent than any other communal enterprise. As historian Oscar Handlin once remarked, “philanthropy was important not only for what it actually accomplished,” but for how “it engaged [Jews] in communal endeavors.”2 Because charitable efforts stood at the ...

  • Modern Orthodox Judaism: A Documentary History ed. by Zev Eleff (review)
    • Abstract: Modern Orthodox Judaism: A Documentary History , part of the Jewish Publication Society/University of Nebraska Series JPS Anthologies of Jewish Thought, edited by Zev Eleff, is a superb volume. As I read its pages, I thought back to an autobiographical piece sociologist Samuel Heilman published in Response in 1975, in which he described being warned by his doctoral adviser that he would be “shunted away from the mainstream of sociology and the modern world,” and that both he and his “work would be ignored” if he wrote on Jewish life in a contemporary American Orthodox synagogue.Behind this episode lay the judgment that traditional expressions of religion in the contemporary setting were at best vestigial remnants ...

  • The Jewish Oregon Story, 1950 – 2010 by Ellen Eisenberg (review)
    • Abstract: Regional histories help broaden our understanding of the wider American Jewish experience beyond the East Coast. The Jewish Oregon Story, 1950–2010, is, therefore, a welcome companion to Ellen Eisenberg’s earlier book, Embracing a Western Identity: Jewish Oregonians, 1849–1950 (2015). In that volume, Eisenberg examined the stories of the state’s Jewish pioneers and later residents from the perspectives of commerce, politics, social welfare, and interethnic and interracial relationships. Like Jewish citizens throughout the West, Jews in Oregon often arrived during the region’s formative years. Early arrival frequently conferred respected pioneer status on Jewish westerners that allowed them to enter business ... Read More

  • From Nuremberg to Hollywood: The Holocaust and the Courtroom in American
           Fictive Film by James Jordan (review)
    • Abstract: Hollywood traditionally loves courtroom dramas, and it is easy to see why. A trial is inherently dramatic, pitting two sides against one another as each seeks to support its own version of the truth. Studying courtroom dramas through time offers the historian a fertile field for detecting how understandings of particular historical events evolve, for in the distinct ways the trials are presented on screen, with filmmakers choosing certain kinds of evidence while excluding others, we can see how one generation’s view of the event may be distinct from another’s. It is James Jordan’s considerable achievement to recognize the promise of this method and to use it to demonstrate the differing ways in which American films ... Read More

    • Abstract: When employees of his ever-expanding department store in Newark served abroad in World War I, Louis Bamberger printed their letters to him in his house organ, Counter Currents, and sent them Christmas care packages and copies of the magazine. Three members of the American Expeditionary Force wrote to thank him for his support of the war effort and for making them feel as though they were still members of the Bamberger family, though thousands of miles away. “Things like these which you—and by this we include the firm and our store also—have done,” they wrote, “make us realize so much more why our store stands first among them all—why we feel proud to be a part of it” (64).The doughboys’ easy blending of commitments ...

  • New York’s Yiddish Theater: From the Bowery to Broadway ed. by Edna
           Nahshon (review)
    • Abstract: Evaluating a book chronicling, or associated with, a museum exhibition is a bit like crafting a theater review. It’s not just about the text, but the spectacle. For those who were unable to attend the original show, the book needs to provide a sense of its flavor, to make an argument for its raison d’etre, to share some of its unique treasures. But the gilt and glitz that work well under stage lights run the risk of fading somewhat in the cold light of print, and that’s where the accompanying text has to play (as it were) its part. Edna Nahshon’s New York’s Yiddish Theater, produced in consultation with the Museum of the City of New York is, not to stretch the metaphor beyond its breaking point, a palpable hit on ... Read More

  • Serious Fun at Jewish Community Summer Camp: Family, Judaism, and Israel
           by Celia E. Rothenberg (review)
    • Abstract: Historians, anthropologists, and education scholars alike have long explored the history and character of American Jewish summer camps. Demographers have performed myriad studies, often with the support of Jewish philanthropists, analyzing camps’ effectiveness as incubators of Jewish identification and affiliation. Most studies on Jewish camping have focused on denominational and Zionist organization-affiliated camps, which draw from populous Jewish communities, leaving community camps serving Jews from rural areas largely out of the picture.Celia E. Rothenberg’s Serious Fun at Jewish Community Summer Camp: Family, Judaism, and Israel contributes to this literature by providing a detailed ethnography of a ... Read More

  • Alleged Nazi Collaborators in the United States after World War II by
           Christoph Schiessl (review)
    • Abstract: In popular imagination many Holocaust perpetrators found a safe haven in South American countries like Argentina. While this is true, those were by no means the only sought-after destinations for Nazi fugitives. As Christoph Schiessl makes convincingly clear in Alleged Nazi Collaborators in the United States after World War II, an estimated 10,000 Nazi war criminals from Central and Eastern Europe also immigrated to this country.Schiessl’s book traces the stories of 150 suspected Holocaust perpetrators from their crimes in Central and Eastern Europe to their new lives in the United States. The book is clearly structured and well written. While Schiessl adds little new to the already well-researched big picture, he ... Read More
