Re: (US) Jews in the "Wild West" #general
Jan Meisels Allen brought to our attention the article published in AISH
about "Jews in the Wild West". Interesting article.
I thought that readers in this forum would be interested in a book by
Harriet and Fred Rochlin, first published in 1984 by Houghton Mifflin Company
titled "Pioneer Jews - A New Life in the Far West". I believe the latest
addition was published in 2014 with about 20 pages added. The 1984 edition
has some 240 pages.
If the AISH article whet your appetite to learn more about the Jews in the
Early West, and how / why they went there then this book is for you.
There are photos, maps, etc.
I have no connection to the authors or the book other than I have a
paperback copy that I've had for about 30 years.
