Journal of American Ethnic History -
Because of the small numbers involved, Eli Faber in this work can follow families, specific communities, and even individuals in gratifying detail. Throughout, his focus is on the persisting tension between preserving the distinctive community on the one hand and, on the other, seeking some identification with the surrounding society... In workmanlike prose Faber demonstrates how patterns of accommodation and survival were set well before large numbers of Jews began arriving in this latter day promised land.
