  • Breaking Down the Barriers: The Encounter between Judaism and Buddhism in
           the Late Nineteenth Century
    • Abstract: On September 26, 1893, in the aftermath of the World’s Parliament of Religions in Chicago, Charles Theodore Strauss (1852–1937)—a wealthy haberdasher of Jewish descent—became the first person ever to be initiated into Buddhism on American soil. Strauss traveled from his home in New York to the Windy City to attend the Parliament, a seventeen-day affair organized around the idea of bringing Eastern and Western religious traditions into contact with each other.1 A serious student of Buddhism and “ardent admirer of the Buddha,” he attended the Parliament to learn more about Buddhism and hear teachings directly from the mouths of the Parliament’s various Buddhist representatives.2A few days after the Parliament ...

  • Yiddish Writers in Los Angeles and the Jewish Fantasy Past
    • Abstract: In 1996, the Jewish Historical Society of Southern California (JHS) produced a film titled Meet Me at Brooklyn and Soto about Jewish life in Boyle Heights, a neighborhood east of the Los Angeles River that was once home to the highest concentration of Jews west of Chicago. The film marked the culmination of a years-long effort to preserve Boyle Heights’s Jewish history, an effort that included an oral history project, photo collection events, and a community-wide campaign to save the Breed Street Shul—the “Queen of the Shuls” in the neighborhood—from demolition after structural damage wrought by an earthquake forced its closure. The film features interviews with former residents, archival photos and home movies ... Read More

  • Turning German Jews into Jewish Greeks: Philanthropy and Acculturation in
           the Jewish Greek System’s Student Refugee Programs, 1936–1940
    • Abstract: In March 1939, a few months before the outbreak of World War II, Margot Bloch, a Jewish refugee from Augsburg, Germany living in the chapter house of the Alpha Epsilon Phi (AEPhi) sorority at the University of Missouri, offered an assessment of her situation in a feature piece of the historically Jewish sorority’s periodical. Margot arrived on Missouri’s campus in 1937, fleeing Germany “after experiencing the transformation of a perfectly good-natured people into a flock of uncultured puppets whose strings are being pulled by a madman.”1 She resumed her college studies in the United States under the auspices of AEPhi, in which she “found a new home” and expressed her gratitude “to the sorority for giving me this ...

  • Identity Projects: Philanthropy, Neoliberalism, and Jewish Cultural
           Production
    • Abstract: Over the course of the twentieth century, a network of Jewish philanthropic organizations gradually came to dominate and define the American Jewish collective. At the center of this network are Jewish community charity federations, which first emerged in the late nineteenth century and reached their apex of power in the decades following World War II. Even in the face of significant intra-Jewish diversity and rapid assimilation and secularization, participation in these communal agencies, which became known as the “federation system,” helped to create and reproduce a cohesive and powerful American Jewish community.1 Writing in 1976, political scientist Daniel Elazar understood the federation system as an American ...

  • Rediscovering Jewish Infrastructure: Showcasing Surviving Eighteenth- and
           Nineteenth-Century Synagogues
    • Abstract: This photographic essay illuminates a few of the ninety-seven buildings that were originally erected as synagogues in the United States during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and still stand today. Calling attention to these structures illustrates how American Jews have maintained and preserved their houses of worship, while also showing how synagogues have been used for alternative purposes in changing urban landscapes.Often following trends in secular and ecclesiastical architecture, the look of US synagogues evolved over the decades. The Touro Synagogue, the only eighteenth-century Jewish house of worship still standing today, was designed in the Georgian style by noted Colonial architect Peter Harrison ... Read More

  • Reconstructing the Old Country: American Jewry in the Post-Holocaust
           Decades ed. by Eliyana R. Adler, Sheila E. Jelen (review)
    • Abstract: In the immediate aftermath of the Holocaust, American Jewry confronted the devastation of the once thriving European Jewish society while also facing its new, unexpected position as the world’s largest and most stable Jewish community. Reconstructing the Old Country: American Jewry in the Post-Holocaust Decades presents a “panoramic” view of how American Jewry’s encounters with the Holocaust defined its role within the global Jewish community, its place in postwar American society, while it also reshaped the contours of American Jewish culture.Reconstructing the Old Country builds on scholarship working to upend a dominant historical narrative that has presented postwar American Jews as reluctant or unprepared to ...

  • The Rabbi’s Atheist Daughter: Ernestine Rose, International Feminist
           Pioneer by Bonnie S. Anderson (review)
    • Abstract: In this deeply researched, eloquently crafted volume, Bonnie Anderson brings to life one of the most fascinating, yet elusive, figures of the nineteenth century, Ernestine L. Rose. Known best for her pioneering role in the early years of the United States women’s rights movement, Rose emerges from Anderson’s careful, creative treatment as a complex figure whose politics and identity did not neatly conform to the historical shorthand we have come to rely upon to narrate the nineteenth century.The rabbi’s atheist daughter was arguably one of the most famous Jews in nineteenth-century reform circles, despite the fact that she rejected Judaism at an early age. Born Ernestine Louise Susmond Potowska in Poland in 1810 ... Read More

  • Advocating for Israel: Diplomats and Lobbyists from Truman to Nixon by
           Natan Aridan (review)
    • Abstract: Without naming names, Aridan sees his study as contributing to a debunking of recent scholarly work on the power of an Israel lobby in the determination of US foreign policy making. He covers the efforts by Israeli officials and their supporters to shape U.S. policy on the Near East from the late 1940s, prior to Israel’s creation in 1948, until 1976. To collect empirical evidence, he undertook laudatory, extensive archival research at various locations in the United States, Israel, and, to a lesser extent, the United Kingdom. He mined documents in English and Hebrew from a combination of state, academic, press and personal collections, engaged in oral interviews with political and academic figures, and extracted ...

  • The Jews of Key West: Smugglers, Cigar Makers, and Revolutionaries
           (1823–1969) by Arlo Haskell (review)
    • Abstract: You’ll find a marvelous description of a palm tree in this charming, important, beautifully-produced book. You and I could never write such a description because there is no way for a palm tree to surprise us. Not so for David Henry Mordecai, who was the first recorded Jewish teenager to visit Key West. Aged 15, he traveled there from Charleston on his father’s supply ship, the Isabel, in 1849. In Key West, the boy wrote in his diary, “I first saw a cocoa-nut tree. It is beautiful from 60 to 70 ft. high and no leaves except at the top.” He adds: “The Bark is smooth rather, and in layers, thus--” Here he sketched the palm tree he saw. The sketch is as naively accurate, and alive, as the diary itself. I know this ... Read More

  • Ambivalent Embrace: Jewish Upward Mobility in Postwar America by Rachel
           Kranson (review)
    • Abstract: Rachel Kranson’s engaging cultural history of Jewish life in postwar America complements revisionist histories of the postwar years that interrogate the notion that the 1950s was an idyllic time characterized by an easy conformity and uncritical ideological consensus. She carefully explores the underlying tensions within the upwardly mobile Jewish community, which eventually contributed to the emergence of a Jewish counterculture in the late 1960s and 1970s. In a search for authenticity, when an increasing number of Jews were joining the ranks of the suburban middle class, postwar Jewish thought leaders romanticized a Jewish cultural life shaped by social isolation and economic vulnerability. Jews coming of age in ... Read More

  • American Sociology and Holocaust Studies: The Alleged Silence and the
           Creation of the Sociological Delay by Adele Valeria Messina (review)
    • Abstract: In 2007, Judith Gerson and Diane Wolf wrote that studying the Holocaust from the perspective of sociology was akin to wandering in the desert. Adele Valeria Messina’s new book, American Sociology and Holocaust Studies: The Alleged Silence and the Creation of the Sociological Delay, provides a close topography of that desert, uncovering forms of early life and the harsh conditions that inhibited growth. Metaphors aside, this comprehensive volume tracks the precise historical and political factors that shaped seven decades of American sociological thought on Nazism and the Holocaust, offering new insight into the notion of a “sociological delay.”The book’s four dense chapters are arranged chronologically, presenting ...

  • From Shtetl to Stardom: Jews and Hollywood ed. by Michael Renov, Vincent
           Brook (review)
    • Abstract: There is something peculiar about American Jewish identity and its representation on page and screen. Despite the enormous success of Jews in America, there remains a crisis of belonging, a persistent fear of the threat coming from the surrounding world and hence discomfort with revealing one’s Jewishness. The new noteworthy volume From Shtetl to Stardom: Jews and Hollywood revisits this peculiarity and how it plays out in contemporary American cinema, television, and comedy. The histories and case studies presented in it provide a rich interpretation of new material and a fresh reinterpretation of familiar paradigms.The volume brings together—and therein lies its novelty—both scholars and industry insiders, such ...

  • When Basketball Was Jewish: Voices of Those Who Played the Game by Douglas
           Stark, and: The Chosen Game: A Jewish Basketball History by Charley Rosen
           (review)
    • Abstract: Douglas Stark and Charley Rosen are authors of several books on the history of basketball. In their new books, they explore the Jewish experience in the game, with an emphasis on the critical, and at times dominant, role Jews played in the sport’s evolution. Stark focuses on Jewish involvement in basketball in the first six decades of the twentieth century; Rosen likewise covers those years but brings the story up to the present. Both works were written primarily for a popular audience, as made evident by the absence of scholarly accoutrements such as footnotes and sources, although Rosen does offer a few.Stark draws on interviews with twenty former players, coaches and referees in his effort to illuminate the ...
