Title:
They Came For Good: A History of the Jews In The United States -Taking Root: 1820-1880 (Video & DVD
Category:
Documentary

Order #: 01291
Beginning in the 19th Century, waves of German and Central European Jews spread out across America, founding most of the Jewish communities that exist today. While the most successful of this group rose to prominence as financiers and merchants, becoming known as “Our Crowd”, in fact the vast majority of the 250,000 Jews who arrived in the United States during this period earned their livelihood in the small retail businesses. Fifteen thousand Jewish peddlers were the main distribution system in rural areas for goods manufactured in the newly industrialized northern cities. TAKING ROOT chronicles the first major split in the practice of Judaism in the Conservative and Reform movement. While on the battlefields of the Civil War, Jews were profoundly divided along regional lines and took up arms on both sides. Approximately 60 minutes in color. Available on Video and DVD
