  • A Preacher in Exile: Shemaryahu Levin and the Making of American Zionism,
           1914–1919
    • Abstract: In 1917, the Degel Zion club of Haverhill, Massachusetts, announced that the city's upcoming bazaar would be hosting a Palestine booth that would sell various Zionist mementos. The booth's special attraction would be a book of essays penned and signed by a major figure in Zionist affairs. The author was not Louis Brandeis, Stephen Wise, Judah Magnes, or any of the other homegrown stalwarts then active on the American Zionist scene, but rather a foreigner spending the war years in the United States, Shemaryahu Levin.1Though a celebrity in America during and following the war, Levin has attracted little attention from historians of Zionism, and has faded into obscurity. Scholars have chronicled how, after emerging as ... Read More

  • "The Whole Air of Exile Is Yours": Modern Inquisitorial Fiction and the
           Facts of the Early (Latin) American Jewish Experience
    • Abstract: During the past thirty years, multiple works of literary fiction by Latin American authors have helped recover the marginalized history of Iberian "New Christians," or conversos, whom Inquisition tribunals prosecuted as secret Jews in colonial Latin America. In prose, poetry, and drama, these works imagine how a silenced people—Spanish and Portuguese Catholic converts of Jewish origin who tried to practice Judaism despite their baptism—thought, spoke, and acted. Why have contemporary Latin American writers chosen to resuscitate this relatively unknown history, and how does their treatment of it through fiction broaden our understanding of an era of American Judaism that often feels outside the bounds of the Jewish ...

  • Building a Home for the Past: Archives and the Geography of American
           Jewish History
    • Abstract: In 1951, leaders of the American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS), the American Jewish Archives, Yeshiva University, and the Yiddish Scientific Institute (YIVO) came together under the aegis of the National Conference of Jewish Communal Service to discuss creating a central archive of American Jewish life.1 It was a time of rising interest in American Jewish history, when scholars like Salo Baron, Jacob Rader Marcus, and others hoped to invigorate American Jewish historical studies and spoke of creating tools and cultivating institutions to foster professional scholarship. And so, these research groups assembled with the hope that they might convince Jewish communities and institutions to preserve their records for ... Read More

  • "The Fabulous Irishman": Lord Mayor Robert Briscoe's "Unusual Religious
           and National Combination" in Cold War America
    • Abstract: Little remembered today, but much discussed at the time was the visit of the Jewish Lord Mayor Robert Briscoe of Dublin to the United States in the spring of 1957. Stranger-than-fiction, but also typifying what Cold War Americans wanted to believe was possible among their own Jewish citizens, Mayor Briscoe embodied an unexpected combination of religious and national loyalties. "The Lord Mayor," explained typical American newspaper coverage of Briscoe's visit, "embodies the unusual combination of a devout orthodox Jew and a zealous Irish patriot."1 The irony was that Briscoe was not American, proving that the freedom of opportunity and religion that Cold War Americans viewed as fundamental to their own purported ...

  • State of the Field: New Directions for American Jewish Migration Histories
    • Abstract: On April 13, 2017, several hundred local Jewish activists, together with allies from New York's Muslim community and city government, rallied in lower Manhattan for a "seder in the streets." Organized by the group Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJ), the event linked the themes of Passover—the intertwined narratives of Jewish wandering and liberation—to the urgent issues of the present. Displaying pieces of blue fabric to evoke the waves of the Red Sea, protesters marched from City Hall to Foley Square and the federal courthouse. They called on the city to make good on its promise to remain a "sanctuary city" in the face of the Trump administration's increasingly harsh immigration law enforcement. ... Read More

  • The Implacable Urge to Defame: Cartoon Jews in the American Press,
           1877–1935 by Matthew Baigell (review)
    • Abstract: Matthew Baigell's The Implacable Urge to Defame: Cartoon Jews in the American Press, 1877–1935 presents a compelling examination of derogatory caricatures of immigrants and minorities, particularly Jews, following the Civil War area through World War II. While it is a well-known fact that this period in American history was rife with anti-immigration policy and legislation, few realize the extent to which anti-Semitism permeated American culture (particularly the media) during this period.Baigell's depiction of bone-chilling, hair-raising anti-Semitic cartoons, followed by both positive and negative photographic and artistic images of Jewish immigrants on the Lower East Side, draws speculations as to the root of ...

  • Levi Strauss: The Man Who Gave Blue Jeans to the World by Lynn Downey
           (review)
    • Abstract: Lynn Downey's Levi Strauss: The Man Who Gave Blue Jeans to the World provides a grounded and thoroughly researched biography of the famed nineteenth-century San Francisco businessman and German-Jewish immigrant. While Strauss is commonly known as the inventor of blue jeans, the popular tales about Strauss, according to Downey, are shrouded in mythology and conflicting "facts." Whether identifying Strauss as a Kentucky rancher or a tent maker, these incorrect depictions of Strauss—many of which were created and perpetrated by the Levi Strauss & Company advertising department—"cloud his accomplishments and his flaws, reduce him to a smiling cardboard cutout, and obscure the true origins of blue jeans" (xii).

  • Borrowed Voices: Writing & Racial Ventriloquism in the Jewish American
           Imagination by Jennifer Glaser (review)
    • Abstract: What does it mean for American Jewish writers to perform non-Jewish identities on the literary stage' In Borrowed Voices: Writing and Racial Ventriloquism in the Jewish American Imagination, Jennifer Glaser provides powerful close readings of post-1967 American Jewish literature, film, and other media, with careful attunement to voice and how writers imagine themselves into otherness. The book is a valuable contribution to Jewish studies, particularly for anyone interested in thinking through race, class, and gender as they are co-constituted across different minority groups in America. This nuanced work addresses the complex ethical valences of speaking "for" the other, with all of the attendant fraught politics ... Read More

  • Who Will Lead Us': The Story of Five Hasidic Dynasties in America by
           Samuel C. Heilman (review)
    • Abstract: Even if one has no particular interest in Orthodox Judaism, whatever Samuel C. Heilman writes is of interest to Jewish studies scholars. At first, both the title and description of the stories of five Hasidic dynasties and their handling of succession problems seem somewhat esoteric, geared for an audience interested in the internecine dynamics of a few aberrant dynasties: Munkacs and Boyan/Kopyczynitz (with a leadership vacuum), Bobov and Satmar (with competing successors) and Chabad (with no successor). This seems especially true since the transition from one leader to the next in most Hasidic communities goes relatively smoothly. However, in the hands of a master storyteller and a keen observer of both time and ... Read More

  • Masculinity and the Making of American Judaism by Sarah Imhoff (review)
    • Abstract: A vibrant scholarship on Jewish women and their gender roles in recent decades has enriched our understanding of American Jewish life. Jewish women were at the forefront of the labor movement in the early twentieth century and second wave feminism in the latter half of the century, in part because their prescribed gender roles varied from their non-Jewish counterparts. Within Jewish households, for example, it was more acceptable for women to work and for unmarried women, in particular, to have access to the public sphere. But what about American Jewish men' In what ways did their gender roles conform or not to American ideals of masculinity and how did Jewish masculinity shape the American Jewish experience more ...

  • American Jewry: A New History by Eli Lederhendler (review)
    • Abstract: It has been over a decade since American Jews have had a new history. In the years since 2004, there have been a number of shifts of intellectual interest in United States historical scholarship. Some of these developments extend back into the twentieth century, such as a focus on gender and sexuality, or visual and material culture. Others, such as an expanding and deepening exploration of race and racism in its structural, political, and cultural dimensions, continue to provoke fresh and compelling reinterpretations of the American past. Still other trends, including a renewed interest in economic and transnational history, have flourished largely in this century. American Jewry participates in the latter. Its ... Read More

  • Hideous Characters & Beautiful Pagans: Performing Jewish Identity on the
           Antebellum American Stage by Heather Nathans (review)
    • Abstract: In Hideous Characters & Beautiful Pagans, Heather S. Nathans explores representations of Jews on stage against the context of the larger antebellum American culture. In the process, she notes how often Jewish men and women turned to gender norms as they struggled to perform both American and Jewish identity. Nathans demonstrates that Jewish characters of this early period did not remain bound by simple negative stereotypes because Jewish playwrights and performers deliberately worked within national cultural trends to broaden and deepen depictions of Jewish men and women as complex contributors to America's growing national identity.Each chapter could have been an article for, as Nathans states at the outset, her ...

  • Hollywood's Spies: The Undercover Surveillance of Nazis in Los Angeles by
           Laura B. Rosenzweig (review)
    • Abstract: Hollywood's role in confronting anti-Semitism and the Nazi menace in the 1930s has been fraught with controversy. Despite Jewish prominence in the movie industry, the major studios mostly evaded these issues on the screen. Warner Brothers' Confessions of a Nazi Spy, released in 1939, was the first dramatic feature devoted to Nazism. As Groucho Marx famously said, Warners was "the only studio with any guts." Ben Urwand in The Collaboration: Hollywood's Pact with Hitler (2013) even charges movie moguls were complicit with Hitler's Germany. Thomas Doherty counters in Hollywood and Hitler, 1933–1939 (2013) that Hollywood displayed resistance.Laura B. Rosenzweig makes an important intervention in this controversy. She ... Read More
