Jewish Experience in America: A History   

When Jews first arrived in America, they saw the New World as a place for new and welcoming beginnings.

This class will examine how the Jewish experience in America did or did not live up to those expectations. To what extent are recent Anti-Semitic incidents outliers or symptomatic of the Jewish experience in America?
