Overview

What did it mean to be a Jew in Muncie? Was there discrimination, and what was it like? What sort of people settled in a small Midwestern town? How did they fare? This book addresses these questions through a series of oral narratives. The Jewish experience in Muncie reflects what many similar communities experienced in hundreds of Middletowns across the Midwest.
