Becoming American, Remaining Jewish: The Story of Wilmington, Delaware's First Jewish Community, 1879-1924

Synopsis

Wilmington's first permanent Jewish community began as a collection of less than 100 Jews in 1879 and grew to a community of over 4000 people by the early 1920s when the immigration laws changed, and growth slowed down. This in-depth study of one community's success in preserving Jewish values and becoming American will provide insights for all readers interested in exploring questions of identity and community today. Illustrated.
