  • Editors’ Introduction
    • Abstract: This issue of American Jewish History marks two anniversaries. The more momentous is the centenary of 1917, the fateful year in which revolutionaries overthrew the Tsar, the British government issued the Balfour Declaration endorsing a “national home for the Jewish people” in Palestine, and the United States entered World War I. All of these events contributed, directly and indirectly, to the transformation of the Jewish world in the twentieth century, and to remaking the place of American Jewry in that world. The second anniversary we mark in this issue is that of 1892, the year in which the American Jewish Historical Society was founded. That date, 125 years distant, was admittedly less transformative than the ... Read More

  • “Let Us Endeavor to Count Them Up”: The Nineteenth-Century Origins of
           American Jewish Demography
    • Abstract: Writing in 1852 in his monthly journal, The Occident and American Jewish Advocate, Isaac Leeser asked his readers, “will not our friends … favor us with such statistics as may be accessible to them' It is surely worth the trouble to prepare at once correct materials for a future history of American Israelites.”1 For Leeser, and for other nineteenth-century Americans, statistics did not mean the mathematical interpretation of numerical data per se, but rather was a catchall term indicating the collection of descriptive demographic, geographic, and historical facts.2 Beginning in the 1840s, Jewish leaders undertook this work of compilation in earnest in the hopes of reigning in or at the very least classifying the ...

  • Complicating the Zionist Narrative in America: Jacob Schiff and the
           Struggle over Relief Aid in World War I
    • Abstract: When the Great War broke out in August 1914, Henry Morgenthau, the United States Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire, contacted Jacob H. Schiff, New York City banker and Jewish philanthropist, pleading for money to assist Jews in Palestine now under duress since the outbreak of war had dramatically curtailed exports. Morgenthau persuaded Schiff to send aid. Together, Schiff and other prominent American Jewish leaders, including Louis Marshall, Oscar Straus, Judah Magnes, Louis Brandeis, Felix Warburg, Julius Rosenwald, Mayer Sulzberger, and others helped form one of the largest and most successful international humanitarian organizations—the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (later called “the Joint”). The ... Read More

  • “For Peace, Not Socialism”: The 1917 Mayoralty Campaign in New York
           City and Immigrant Jews in a Global Perspective
    • Abstract: As New York City’s mayoral campaign was reaching its final stage in early November 1917, a Jewish reader by the name of John D. Nussbaum wrote to the New York Tribune: “The East Side Jews will vote for Mr. Hillquit [the anti-war socialist candidate] not because they have been converted to Socialism … but simply as a protest against the old parties, whom they hold responsible for our entry into the world war. The Jews are primarily a peace-loving people. They simply detest war.” Expressing a similar view in the same week in an open letter titled “For Peace, Not Socialism,” Zionist leader Louis Lipsky explained the anxieties of immigrant Jews. He delineated the horrors of conscription to the Tsarist military and ... Read More

  • Signposts: Cyrus Adler’s Vision of American Jewish Historical
           Writing
    • Abstract: If Cyrus Adler (1863–1940) came back to life today, he would be gratified with the activities of the American Jewish Historical Society [AJHS] as it commemorates its 125th anniversary in 2017. For in its scope and emphases, the society is fulfilling the vision that he had for the professionalization of a field that only in the last few decades has come fully into its own. More than 100 years ago, this first major Jewish scholar to associate himself with the society envisioned a day when trained and productive professional academics, schooled in a variety of disciplines, would examine the American Jewish experience rigorously even as he hoped for this moment in time when their work would be adjudged as valuable ...

  • Israeli Historiography on American Jewry
    • Abstract: On Rosh Hashanah Eve in 1969, a three-volume set on the history of the Jewish people from biblical times to the mid-twentieth century was published in Israel. In the foreword, the editor, Haim Hillel Ben-Sasson, wrote that “the work offered here to readers is the joint enterprise of a number of historians. Despite the differences in their fundamental historical outlooks and research approaches, the different sections merge into a continuous view of the history of Israel from the beginnings to the present day.”1 For a generation, these volumes were the most important textbooks on the subject for Israeli universities and high schools. They sketched the lineaments of the long history of the Jewish people, highlighted ... Read More

  • Introduction: “Re-Framing American Jewish History and Thought: New
           Transnational Perspectives,” Potsdam (Germany), July 20–22, 2016
    • Abstract: In recent years, “transnationalism” has become a key concept for historians and other scholars in the humanities and social sciences. However, its overuse threatens to dilute what would otherwise be a distinct approach with promising heuristic potential. This danger seems especially pronounced when the notion of transnationalism is applied to Jewish history, which, paradoxically, most scholars would agree, is at its core transnational. Many studies have analyzed how Jewries in different times and places, from the biblical era to the present, have been shaped by people, ideas, texts, and institutions that migrated across state lines and between cultures. So what is new about transnationalism in Jewish Studies' What ... Read More

  • Clinging to Borders and Boundaries': The (Sorry) State of
           Transnational American Jewish Studies
    • Abstract: The idea of “transnationalism” has influenced the research agendas of the humanities and social sciences for some two decades now, providing new perspectives and maybe even a paradigm shift on many issues.1 Surprisingly, American Jewish Studies appears to have been slow in following this turn in modeling this perspective on the American Jewish experience. While the experience of Jewish transnationalism is, of course, well accounted for, the idea and theory of transnationalism are less so. Therefore, recent books that take an explicitly transnational approach to the subject have been hailed as early adopters.2 In a review of one of these works, Riv-Ellen Prell stated still in 2015, “Jewish history is transnational ...

  • Reflections on Transnationalism and the American Jewish Experience
    • Abstract: If we entertain the proposition that “local” history can be shaped by an individual’s membership in a larger, trans-border, constituency, then it seems quite logical that a transnational approach to the study of American Jewish history provides us, perhaps somewhat paradoxically, with a methodology that may serve to enrich and enhance our understanding of Jewish “local” history – the history of, in this instance, the American Jewish experience.1The dean of American Jewish historians, Jacob Rader Marcus (1896–1995), took note of the significance of transnationalism more than a half century ago. He posited that Jews became “a deathless people” precisely because of the trans-geographical dimension of their historical ... Read More

  • From Community and Place to Network and Space: The Transnational Dimension
           of Immigration in American Jewish History
    • Abstract: The concept of “transnational history” emerged in the 1990s as a response to the call to “internationalize” American history.1 It is no accident that this new methodological approach among American historians had an extraordinary impact on Jewish history, a field of research that was at the same time particularly influenced by a re-emerging transnational consciousness in a newly united post-Cold War Europe.Transnational approaches have challenged previous understandings of “Americanization” and “assimilation” as linear, straightforward and one-directional processes. Today immigrant identities are generally understood by scholars to result from “complex and multidirectional processes of transformation and cultural ... Read More

  • Transnational Perspectives on Jewish and American-Jewish Studies
    • Abstract: Confronted with the question of the potential for a transnational perspective on American Jewish studies, I am tempted, as a historian, to answer with a question myself: What other way is there for Jewish studies to begin' My own research has been transnational from the very beginning: Even when I was working on Jewish student fraternities at German universities in Imperial and Weimar Germany, my protagonists and my sources crossed borders, which made my work as a researcher transnational—even if my research questions were not. Today, I am working on the experience of statelessness and the idea of universal belonging as one of the possible remedies to overcome statelessness. With such a topic it becomes much more ...

  • Modern Historians and Jewish Transnational Perspectives
    • Abstract: The idea of reframing American Jewish history in a transnational perspective, as I understand it, aims chiefly to include Europe inside the frame. That, as I and a growing number of other writers have urged, is a most useful expansion of the classic focus by Jewish Americanists on the United States alone. In fact, this proposition no longer requires a novel and robust defense, since the transnational gaze is already a fairly established feature in some parts of American Jewish historiography. That is true with regard to the early American period of the Sephardi Atlantic diaspora and it holds true, as well, for the turn-of-the-twentieth-century mass Jewish migrations out of Eastern Europe.1 It has taken somewhat ...

  • Transnational Ties: The Longue Durée of Jewish Migrations to the
           United States
    • Abstract: American Jewish life has been shaped by the constant arrival of immigrants from distinct religious and cultural milieus. A long, almost uninterrupted, history of continuous immigration that reaches from the seventeenth century to the present betrays a remarkable cultural diversity distinguishing Jews from most other immigrant groups in the United States. Since the first settlers from Recife reached New Amsterdam in 1654, Jewish immigrants in North America have maintained ties to different Jewish communities in other parts of the world. The focus of the scholarship on specific subgroups and time periods has obscured the longue durée of Jewish immigration, the history of diverse ties Jewish migrants maintained with ... Read More

    • Abstract: On Thursday, March 16, 2017, a new exhibit, 1917: One Year that Changed the World, opened at the National Museum of American Jewish History (NMAJH) in Philadelphia. Produced in partnership with the American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS), the exhibit centers around three principle events of that pivotal year: the United States’s entry into World War I, the Balfour Declaration, and the Bolshevik Revolution. While the exhibition focuses on 1917 through a Jewish lens, it also aims to show how the process of Americanization affected all hyphenated Americans. The exhibition will move to New York City in the fall, opening at the American Jewish Historical Society in the Center for Jewish History on September 7, 2017. ... Read More

  • Executing the Rosenbergs: Death and Diplomacy in a Cold War World by Lori
           Clune (review)
    • Abstract: On Friday, June 19, 1953, after President Dwight Eisenhower denied their final appeal for clemency, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed at Sing Sing Prison in Ossining, New York. Convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage on behalf of the Soviet Union, the Rosenbergs had maintained their innocence from the very first moment FBI agents arrested Julius on July 17, 1950, followed by the arrest of Ethel a few weeks later at their Lower East Side apartment. The state also never wavered in its belief that the Rosenbergs would become informants. The Justice Department privately acknowledged that its case against Ethel was weak, but her arrest and subsequent sentencing to death in the electric chair—in a trial ... Read More

  • The Jews of Harlem: The Rise, Decline, and Revival of a Jewish Community
           by Jeffrey Gurock (review)
    • Abstract: At the end of the penultimate chapter of The Jews of Harlem, Jeffrey Gurock ventures, “Harlem is now, as it was a century ago, very good for Jews.” Whether or not this is the case, Harlem has certainly been good for the field of American Jewish history and Gurock, who started his illustrious career with the publication of When Harlem Was Jewish, 1870–1930 (1978), a book based upon his dissertation. In that book, he traced the movement of New York City’s Jews into Harlem and their subsequent outmigration, arguing that regnant Chicago School theories of urban migration were not adequate to explain the diverse factors that led thousands of New York Jews to the northern reaches of Manhattan. The book was important for ... Read More

  • Jacob Neusner. An American Iconoclast by Aaron W. Hughes (review)
    • Abstract: Aaron Hughes deserves high praise for this intellectual biography. Presciently recognizing an impulse to reassess Jacob Neusner’s accomplishments, Hughes makes a strong case for considering Neusner not only a pathbreaking scholar in rabbinic and religious studies and a consistent enemy of parochialism in Jewish studies, but also an important American-born Jewish thinker. Hughes ably narrates the many intellectual developments in Neusner’s career: from positivist-historian to methodological religionist; from old-fashioned lecturer to Socratic teacher; from Democrat to Republican. He similarly grasps the contradictions of a builder who attacked many of the institutions with which he was involved; an intellectual ... Read More

  • Hybrid Judaism: Irving Greenberg, Encounter, and the Changing Nature of
           American Jewish Identity by Darren Kleinberg (review)
    • Abstract: It is certainly true that people thinking of themselves as” Jewish” in contemporary North America assert radically differing interpretations of the term. Is “Jewish” a religious expression' But, if so, how can it be defined' Is “Jewish” descriptive of an ethnicity' But, if so, can we give it any hard and fast definition'Decried by some, embraced by others, the current diversity and fluidity of definitions of the term “Jewish” has given rise to a multitude of hybridities that in previous generations would have been dismissed as inherently absurd and self-contradictory. Nonetheless, numerous such hybridities have engendered communities that proudly espouse the possibility of being, for example, a “gay frum Jew” in ... Read More

  • Narratives from the Sephardic Atlantic: Blood and Faith by Ronnie Perelis
           (review)
    • Abstract: This book focuses on three autobiographical texts produced in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries by natives of Spain and Portugal who at some point in their lives became avowed judaizers: Luis de Carvajal the Younger (1567–1596), an itinerant peddler and governor’s nephew whose life ended on the Inquisitorial pyre of New Spain (in what is today Mexico); the Portuguese merchant Antonio de Montezinos (1604–1647), who formally embraced Judaism in Amsterdam; and the tradesman Manuel Cardoso de Macedo (1585–1652), who identified as an Old Christian and eventually converted to Judaism in Hamburg after a brief interval in England and Spain as an adherent of Protestantism. All of these individuals were “caught within ... Read More

  • Jews and the American Religious Landscape by Uzi Rebhun (review)
    • Abstract: Over the past decade since the Pew Religious Landscape Survey was published, scholars and communal leaders have continuously argued over whether the American Jewish population is increasing or decreasing in numbers and strength. Too often, however, these debates take place in a demographic vacuum that lacks assessment and comparison with the Christian majority’s denominations and other religious minorities. Uzi Rebhun’s Jews and the American Religious Landscape offers a refreshing perspective by giving readers a brilliant analysis that illustrates how American Jewry is neither gaining in vigor nor facing its sunset.Rebhun accomplishes this feat by comparing Jews’ affinities with those of other religious groups ...

  • Herbert H. Lehman: A Political Biography by Duane Tananbaum (review)
    • Abstract: It is a rather remarkable fact and perhaps an indictment of the history profession and academic publishing that Herbert H. Lehman—who served as Franklin D. Roosevelt’s lieutenant governor for two terms from 1929 through 1932, succeeded him as governor and served four terms through 1940, was the first director-general of the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration from 1943 to 1946, and then represented the state of New York in the Senate from 1950 through 1957—is the subject of but one biography, an authorized one, written by Alan Nevins in 1963. The reason for this, his most recent biographer, Duane Tananbaum muses, might be that Lehman left behind him a series of quite significant achievements in ... Read More
