The Jewish Americans

The Jewish Americans

by Marissa Lingen

Most Jews who immigrated to North America did so to escape persecution and to find a place where they could practice their religion freely. Unlike many immigrant groups, Jews did not come to North America primarily from a single country. Rather, they came from many different lands, including Russia, Germany, Poland, and Spain. Once in the United States and Canada, Jewish immigrants struggled to maintain their faith and follow traditional ways. They also faced considerable prejudice. This book tells the story of Jewish migration to North America during the 19th and 20th centuries. It also examines the remarkable contributions Jewish people have made to American society and culture.
