Summary

Explores American Jewish history.

“American Jewry today is undergoing a crisis of confidence and identity. The concern over survival is so thick it is practically palpable. This book addresses itself to those issues right at the top of the American Jewish agenda, puts them into historical perspective, and interprets them with uncommonly good common sense.” — Melvin I. Urofsky, Chair, Department of History, Virginia Commonwealth University, and National Chairman of the American Jewish Historical Society Academic Council

“Feingold is especially acute on Jews and politics, on the Conservative movement, and on the prospects for Jewish survival. The most impressive facet of A Midrash on American Jewish History is its value and appeal not only to scholars, who will profit from its thoughtfulness, but also to intelligent general readers, who will learn of the most salient themes that the American Jewish past and present evoke.” — Stephen J. Whitfield, Associate Professor of American Studies, Brandeis University

“I really don’t know of any book that so competently covers the entire field and is so interesting to read. It is a beautifully written and brilliantly organized piece of history by an outstanding authority in the field who knows both American and Jewish history (a rare combination).” — Selig Adler, Samuel P. Capen Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus, State University of New York at Buffalo

Henry L. Feingold is Professor of History at Baruch College and at the Graduate School of the City University of New York. He is the author of the critically acclaimed book Zion in America. The editor of the American Jewish History journal, Dr. Feingold is also associated with the Institute for the Advanced Studies of the Humanities of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America.
