  • Editor's introduction
    • Abstract: We are honored to take over the helm of American Jewish History, continuing a long line of distinguished editors who have come before us. We want to thank the Executive Committee of the Academic Council of the American Jewish Historical Society for entrusting the journal to us for the next five years. The prospect of seeking out and helping to develop the newest, most exciting work in our field thrills all three of us.As we begin our tenure at the journal, we look forward to continuing some of the innovations of earlier editors, including special guest-edited thematic volumes, review essays, and explorations of classic texts. We also look forward to introducing some new features of our own. One such feature will ... Read More

  • Introduction: Jewish American Material Culture
    • Abstract: A family of six sits around a table ready to start a festive meal. Bubbe and Zayde are there. The cloth is white, the plates are blue, and the family has prepared perfectly formed latkes and challah to start the meal. A silver Hanukiah with candles ablaze stands close—but not too close—to the carefully wrapped gifts. With kippot on their heads, Zayde holds a siddur and Abba a Kiddush cup. A young boy dances in his chair, clasping a dreidel. Bubbe holds a gift. Ima flits between the festivities and the kitchen, spoon in hand. Music plays in the background, and the family's dog waits poised by the refrigerator.This family might seem like many other Jewish families across America during the festival of Hanukkah, if ...

  • A Home between Death and Life: Mausoleums as Liminal Spaces of Memory for
           Classical Reform Jews of Temple Emanu-El, 1890–1945
    • Abstract: In early twentieth-century New York City, members of the Classical Reform Temple Emanu-El led lives of splendor.1 They lived in stately townhouses in Manhattan and worshipped at their cathedral-like, jewel-box synagogue at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 65th Street on New York's Upper East Side.2 When they died, members were buried a few miles away at the temple's Brooklyn cemetery, Salem Fields. In death, these families transitioned from worldly homes of high taste to equally exquisite deathly homes: luxurious family mausoleums, which were made of marble, mosaics, and stained glass; and furnished with lounges, tables, and Persian rugs. Salem Fields Cemetery stands today as a rich repository of memorial art ... Read More

  • "The Lower East Side's Synagogue, Tenement, and Russian Bathhouse:
           Mikva'ot and the Excavation of a Mikvah at 5 Allen Street"
    • Abstract: Writing about the imponderables of ancient Mesopotamian religion, Leo Oppenheim wondered, "To what extent and with what degree of reliability can written sources impart to us that accumulation of cult practices, of tradition-bound individual and group reactions to things considered sacred…?"1 The same question arises with respect to the mikvah in late nineteenth to early twentieth century New York City, when the Jewish population of the Lower East Side reached its highest concentration. In the first place, the relevant documents do not address the experiential "accumulation" of ritual practices associated with the mikvah, much less the attitude of participants. To understand these, one needs the illuminating ... Read More

  • Beyond Synagogues and Cemeteries: The Built Environment as an Aspect of
           Vernacular Jewish Material Culture in Charleston, South Carolina
    • Abstract: To date, synagogues and cemeteries have received the bulk of attention in the analysis and preservation of large, immovable Jewish material culture in the United States, skewing our understanding of buildings and neighborhoods as a type of cultural artifact. This is in contrast to smaller, movable material items, such as ritual objects and personal effects. However, despite the time even the most pious Jews may have spent in a synagogue—or at their eternal rest within a cemetery—American Jews do not live in these places. They live in houses and work elsewhere, spending most of their lives outside of synagogues and cemeteries. From a material culture perspective, little attention has been paid to the places where ...

  • Swan Street, Visual Memory and the Archive
    • Abstract: As a scholar of diaspora and postcolonial literature, I am interested in how contemporary writers creatively engage with, critique and supplement the archive, including the photographic archive. This photograph of Swan Street in Bridgetown, Barbados is intriguing to me as an example of the status of the photograph as a vehicle of cultural memory—in this case Jewish Caribbean memory. Looking at the image, I would want to consider why photography is such a rich medium for reflections on diaspora. As Stanley Cavell remarks, the photograph circulates as a partial trace of an absent presence, dispersed from its original referent.1 In this way, it echoes the scattering of diaspora that is captured in the name of the ...

  • Life at the Corner of Swan and Prince William Henry Streets: A Snapshot
           from Bridgetown, Barbados
    • Abstract: The photograph titled "Swan Street (formerly called 'Jew Street')" at the American Jewish Historical Society archives is a copy of a lost original; however, what is portrayed is informative. If a picture is worth a thousand words, we can ascertain a substantial amount of information about Swan Street in Bridgetown, Barbados, beginning with the precise whereabouts. To the right of the photograph's center, a street sign reading "PR WM Henry" gives us a specific location. According to city maps of Bridgetown, Swan Street is an east-west thoroughfare that dead-ends at High Street, its eastern terminus shortly after the Prince William Henry Street intersection. Considering that we do not see the High Street terminus ... Read More

  • The B'nai B'rith Encounters Nazi Germany, 1933
    • Abstract: Adolf Hitler ascended to power in Germany on January 30, 1933, when President Paul von Hindenburg appointed him Chancellor of the Reich. He now had the opportunity to implement his racial ideology and worldview regarding Jews. At that time, Germany's Jewish population numbered 525,000 out of a general population of 67 million. After the March 5 Reichstag elections, the new government removed the constraints on violence against Jews, and assaults on Jewish businesses and vicious beatings of Jews by Nazi thugs became commonplace. On March 20, the German government established the first concentration camp, Dachau, near Munich. On April 1, the government launched an official boycott of Jewish doctors, lawyers, and ... Read More

  • That Judaism Might Yet Live: Pastoral Care and the Making of the
           Post-Holocaust Conservative Rabbinate
    • Abstract: Gauged both by consumer demand and by the clergyman's self-evaluation, the chief business of religion in the United States is now—and probably has long been—the cure of souls.In 1963, the Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS), the flagship rabbinical school of the Conservative movement in America, received a three-year grant from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) to develop curricula and train students in the art of pastoral counseling.2 In the postwar years, many people turned to clergy to address their emotional problems;3 the NIMH sponsored programs to arm them with the skills to respond. To the extent that other religious institutions, Jewish and Christian, also received funding, the JTS grant is best ... Read More

  • Sulzerism, Sulzermania, and the Shaping of the American Cantorate
    • Abstract: "The name of Salomon Sulzer has, to modern cantors, an almost mythical sound."1 When musicologist Eric Werner wrote these words for the 1954 reissue of Viennese cantor-composer Salomon Sulzer's Schir Zion,2 the name, much more than the music, was a source of reverence for American cantors. New York's Hebrew Union College (HUC) School of Sacred Music, which Werner helped spearhead into existence, was just six years old.3 It was the first American academy to train professional cantors, and the idea of cantors leading Reform services—as opposed to a choir director or soloist—was still new in many parts of the country. Werner saw Sulzer (1804–1890) as the cantorial ideal, equally adept at vocal performance, Hebraic ... Read More

  • Wasserman Prize
    • Abstract: We are pleased to announce the winners of the Wasserman Prize for the outstanding article in American Jewish History for 2016.This year's Wasserman Prize has been awarded to Britt P. Tevis for her article "'The Hebrews are Appearing in Court in Great Numbers': Toward a Reassessment of Early Twentieth-Century American Jewish Immigration History." Tevis's article discusses Jewish immigrants who were determined "likely to become a public charge," the officials who worked to exclude them from the United States, and the Jewish lawyers who took up their cases. She reminds us that immigration, even before the restrictive 1924 quota laws passed, was no simple feat and that, contrary to many historical accounts, debarment ... Read More

  • The Star and the Stripes: A History of the Foreign Policies of American
           Jews by Michael Barnett (review)
    • Abstract: Michael Barnett offers a comprehensive, insightful, and well-written account of the way American Jews have positioned themselves vis-à-vis the wider world, shifting between internationalism, particularism, and cosmopolitanism over time. With thought-provoking insight, he traces the American Jewish community's fluctuations between a more tribally concerned outlook and a more cosmopolitan stance. While that cosmopolitanism partially derives, he argues, from prophetic Judaism, it in turn has "many of the elements that define what international relations scholars call liberal internationalism," emphasizing the state as the embodiment of "liberal values and actively promot[ing] the expansion of markets, democracy, and ...

  • The Salome Ensemble: Rose Pastor Stokes, Anzio Yezierska, Sonya Levin, and
           Jetta Goudal by Alan Robert Ginsbergt (review)
    • Abstract: How does the modern woman measure her worth, by the money she earns, or the man she marries? This dilemma lies at the heart of Salome of the Tenements, a novel (1922) and movie (1925), and it pulses through the biographies of four women who collaborated on this cultural production: Rose Pastor Stokes, Anzia Yezierska, Sonya Levien, and Jetta Goudal. Alan Robert Ginsberg's engaging new book The Salome Ensemble analyzes the Salome narrative and explores the possibilities for self-invention available to immigrant Jewish women during the first third of the twentieth century. In the United States, Ginsberg argues, Stokes, Yezierska, Levien, and Goudal "learned that identities are multiple, plural, and elective" (1). All ... Read More

  • Kosher USA: How Coke Became Kosher and Other Tales of Modern Foods by
           Roger Horowitz (review)
    • Abstract: Starting as a niche segment of the American food industry, kosher food has become ubiquitous, with more than 70,000 products certified as kosher and close to 15 billion dollar business in annual sales. How kosher food became such a major segment of the marketplace is the subject of Roger Horowitz's engaging book Kosher USA. Horowitz explores how an ancient set of rituals governing food consumption among Jews was transformed by modern science through the fascinating story of how everyday foodstuffs like Coca-Cola (which contains glycerin), Jell-O (which contains gelatin), and Oreos (which originally contained lard) succeeded in becoming kosher, frequently over the vociferous objections of Orthodox rabbis for whom ...

  • Modern Orthodoxy in American Judaism: The Era of Leo Jung by Maxine
           Jacobson (review)
    • Abstract: Rabbi Dr. Leo Jung was among the most respected and influential figures in the twentieth-century American Orthodox rabbinate. An alumnus of the Rabbiner Seminar in Berlin and numerous European universities, he served for over sixty years at Manhattan's prestigious The Jewish Center, the pioneering Orthodox "shul with a pool" whose founding rabbi was Mordecai M. Kaplan. He was a key player in the nascent Yeshiva College (today Yeshiva University, YU), the Orthodox Union (OU) which transformed American kashrut supervision, the Rabbinical Council of America, and the non-sectarian Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), among others. He was also a prolific author and editor who produced some of the first works of Orthodox ... Read More

  • Cartoonists Against the Holocaust by Rafael Medoff and Craig Yoe (review)
    • Abstract: At its most robust, political cartooning, with its rich and sometimes contentious history, can make a broad public aware of actions, behaviors, and events deemed newsworthy–and even inspire a response. In American politics, for example, Thomas Nast's Harper's Weekly cartoons are known to have had a considerable effect on American culture and politics in the middle-to-late 1800s. Following the widespread use of photography in the late nineteenth century, political cartoons lost some of their stature and force; more recently, the information age, which offers a variety of shorthand political opinion markers, from Tweets to memes, has relegated political cartoons to just one of many popularized forms of curt but ...

  • A History of Antisemitism in Canada by Ira Robinson (review)
    • Abstract: Until now a comprehensive study of antisemitism in Canada had not been written. Ira Robinson has filled this void with a survey that covers the subject from its beginnings in Christian Europe until the present day. The experiences of Jews in Canada, similar to those in much of the Christian world, mixes a long history of persecution with varying degrees of acceptance at different times in history. Since the end of World War II, significant changes in laws and societal attitudes in Canada have resulted in greater tolerance and legal protections for minorities. Despite the new atmosphere and opportunities, pockets of antisemitic fervor still exist and are mostly seen in attacks on Zionism and Israeli policies towards ... Read More

  • Fair Labor Lawyer: The Remarkable Life of New Deal Attorney and Supreme
           Court Advocate Bessie Margolin by Marlene Trestman (review)
    • Abstract: In Fair Labor Lawyer, former attorney Marlene Trestman recounts the life of Bessie Margolin, the "first and only woman whose name appeared on the Supreme Court brief of any of the New Deal cases" (56). Although Margolin has not previously received scholarly attention, during her lifetime she elicited enormous interest from the press, which saw her as a "pioneering professional woman" and the "quintessential lady lawyer" (xiii). Drawing on personal papers, oral histories and rich archival evidence, Trestman painstakingly traces Margolin's life trajectory and her significant contributions to modern American law.Born into a Russian Jewish immigrant family in early twentieth-century New York, Bessie Margolin spent her ...
