GI Jews : how World War II changed a generation by Deborah Dash Moore( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over half a million Jews entered the U.S. Armed Forces during the Second World War. They joined every branch of the military and saw action on all fronts. Author Moore describes the struggles these GI Jews faced, having to battle not only the enemy but also the prejudices of their fellow soldiers. Through memoirs, oral histories, and letters, Moore charts the lives of fifteen young Jewish men as they faced military service and tried to make sense of its demands. From confronting pork chops to enduring front-line combat, from the temporary solace of Jewish worship to harrowing encounters with death camp survivors, we come to understand how these soldiers wrestled with what it meant to be an American and a Jew. These men challenged perceptions of Jews as simply victims of the war, and encouraged Jews throughout the diaspora to fight for what was right.--From publisher description

Cityscapes : a history of New York in images by Howard B Rock( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Neither a conventional history of the city nor simply a collection of illustrations and photographs, this work weaves together diverse historical works - from political and economic analyses to ethnic and gender studies - with visual evidence from each historical period." "Cityscapes tells the story of the city from its origins in the early seventeenth century, when Dutch settlers encountered the Lenape Indians and founded New Amsterdam, through the end of the twentieth century. Through lithographs, paintings, drawings, and broadsides New York is portrayed as rising from a small Dutch outpost to a republican seaport whose life was framed by the American Revolution. The visual evidence changes to etchings, photographs, and lithographs as Cityscapes depicts a mid-nineteenth-century city torn by dislocations caused by a multiethnic society wracked by the turmoil of the industrial revolution. Documenting the turn of the last century, a wealth of photographs shows the new five-borough metropolis absorbing waves of immigrants and portrays the evolution of the immigrant metropolis into the cosmopolitan city of mid-century. In its final chapter, Cityscapes looks at the global village and takes stock of New York's role as the world economic and artistic capital of the late twentieth century."--Jacket
To the golden cities : pursuing the American Jewish dream in Miami and L.A. by Deborah Dash Moore( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first great modern migration of the Jewish people, from the Old World to America, has been often and expertly chronicled, but until now the second great wave of Jewish migration has been overlooked. After World War II, spurred by a postwar economic boom, American Jews sought new beginnings in the nation's South and West. Thousands abandoned their previous homes in the urban, industrial centers of the North and moved to Miami and Los Angeles seeking warmth, opportunity, and ultimately a new Jewish community - one unlike any they had ever known. This move turned out to be as significant as their ancestors' departure from their traditional worlds. Earlier Jewish immigrants to the New World had sought to fit into the well-established communities they found in the North, but Miami and L.A. were frontier towns with few rules for newcomers. Jews could establish new economic niches in the hotel and real estate industries, and build new schools, political organizations, and community centers to reshape the cities' ethnic landscapes. Drawing upon rich and extensive research, historian Deborah Dash Moore traces the evolution of a new consensus on the boundaries of Jewish life and what it means to be Jewish. In Miami, this consensus took shape through the struggles to define a community in the face of Christian anti-Semitism. In L.A., Jews were compelled to define their religious and political identities while pressure from HUAC hearings labeled many as communists. Both communities, spurred by the model of the strong, autonomous Jew emerging from the new state of Israel, fought restricted beaches and Christian prayer in schools and made their political presence known. Today these sun-soaked, entrepreneurial communities have become part of a truly American, self-confident style of Judaism. Most American Jews have families or friends who have chosen to live in these urban paradises. Many others have visited or vacationed under their palm trees. Now the vibrant Jewish culture of these cities comes to life through Moore's skillful weaving of individual voices, dreams, and accomplishments. To the Golden Cities is an epic saga of an essential moment in American Jewish history, the shaping of a new postwar Judaism for the second half of the twentieth century

Jewish New York : the remarkable story of a city and a people by Deborah Dash Moore( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on the acclaimed multi-volume series, City of Promises: A History of the Jews of New York, Jewish New York reveals the multifaceted world of one of the city's most important ethnic and religious groups. Spanning three centuries, Jewish New York traces the earliest arrival of Jews in New Amsterdam to the recent immigration of Jews from the former Soviet Union. Jewish immigrants transformed New York. They built its clothing industry and constructed huge swaths of apartment buildings. New York Jews helped to make the city the center of the nation's publishing industry and shaped popular culture in music, theater, and the arts. With a strong sense of social justice, a dedication to civil rights and civil liberties, and a belief in the duty of government to provide social welfare for all its citizens, New York Jews influenced the city, state, and nation with a new wave of social activism. In turn, New York transformed Judaism and stimulated religious pluralism, Jewish denominationalism, and contemporary feminism. The city's neighborhoods hosted unbelievably diverse types of Jews, from Communists to Hasidim. Jewish New York not only describes Jews' many positive influences on New York, but also exposes the group's struggles with poverty and anti-Semitism. These injustices reinforced an exemplary commitment to remaking New York into a model multiethnic, multiracial, and multireligious world city."--Publisher's description
Urban origins of American Judaism by Deborah Dash Moore( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The urban origins of American Judaism began with daily experiences of Jews, their responses to opportunities for social and physical mobility as well as constraints of discrimination and prejudice. Deborah Dash Moore explores Jewish participation in American cities and considers the implications of urban living for American Jews across three centuries. Looking at synagogues, streets, and snapshots, she contends that key features of American Judaism can be understood as an imaginative product grounded in urban potentials
Taking stock : cultures of enumeration in contemporary Jewish life by Michal Kravel-Tovi( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking Stock is a collection of lively, original essays that explore the cultures of enumeration that permeate contemporary and modern Jewish life. Speaking to the profound cultural investment in quantified forms of knowledge and representation--whether discussing the Holocaust or counting the numbers of Israeli and American Jews--these essays reveal a social life of Jewish numbers. As they trace the uses of numerical frameworks, they portray how Jews define, negotiate, and enact matters of Jewish collectivity. The contributors offer productive perspectives into ubiquitous yet often overlooked aspects of the modern Jewish experience
