Hertzberg, a rabbi, research fellow (Columbia U.) and professor (religion, Dartmouth College), traces the history of the Jews in America since colonial times. Coming to America to seek prosperity rather than religious freedom, the Jews maintained an ambiguous relationship to their religion and ethnicity. Between the struggle to assimilate and the loss of ethnicity, the Jewish community faces an identity crisis. Hertzberg examines the Jewish-American past in order to chart a direction for the future of American Jewry. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
