Overview

From history to humor to human rights, from the diaspora to the deli, the topics covered in this compendium of quotations provide a remarkable view of Jewish life in America -- in all its variety and contradiction -- during the past one hundred years. It has been a century in which Jews have had a tremendous impact on America -- and in which America has had a great impact on the Jewish community. This collection features more than three thousand quotes, organized by subject and indexed by sources from Gloria Steinem to Howard Stern -- creating an intergenerational dialogue expressing not only wit and wisdom, but the experiences of day-to-day life. Unlike any other Jewish quote book available, this is an outstanding reference of memorable words as well as an unparalleled portrait of a people.
