American Jewish History: 350 Years in 3 Easy Lessons

By David Kaufman

Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE), 2004

The author examines three lenses through which American Jewish history may be seen, and taught: Americanist, which seeks to demonstrate that Jews have been present from the beginnings of America, have contributed to its major moments and have become American; Judaic, which focuses on how Jews preserved their religion, traditions and identities in the new land; and American Jewish, a synthesis of the other two. In Jewish Education News, Summer 2004.
