Review: "The Role of American Jews": The Jews in America: A History

Title:
Review: "The Role of American Jews": The Jews in America: A History
Authors:
Yinger, J. Milton
Abstract:
In this article, the author critically examines the book "The Jews in America: A History," by Rufus Learsi. The history of Jews in America can not be written, as this timely and thoughtful book well shows, without careful attention to the world situation. This was as true in 1654, when 23 Jewish refugees from Portuguese Brazil landed in New Amsterdam, as it was in 1881 or 1933 or 1947. Many patterns of European Jewry were functional adaptations to situations very different from those faced by Jews in the United States. Change was and is inevitable, as Learsi well shows.
