Overview

This remarkable chronicle of New York City's Jewish families during the years of the Great Depression tells the previously untold story of a generation of immigrants and their children who faced an uncertain future in America. Beth S. Wenger shows how widespread adaptation and acculturation within the Jewish community enabled it to emerge from the turmoil of the period and thrive in the post-World War II era.
