Jews in Wisconsin, Sheila Terman Cohen - alk. paper

"Jews in Wisconsin traces the migration of Jews from Germany and Eastern Europe, some driven from their homelands by persecution and others who came in search of expanded opportunities. Through detailed historical information and personal accounts, this book brings to life the trials and triumphs of Wisconsin Jews as they adjusted to life here, assimilating in some ways and holding onto their distinct cultural identities in others. Readers will also learn about the many substantial ways Jews--a few famous and many ordinary--have contributed to the fabric of this state's history. The text is augmented with historical images and excerpts of journals and letters", Provided by publisher
