The American Jew: Voices from an American Jewish Community

9780006276876: The American Jew: Voices from an American Jewish Community

The Jewish community in America is the largest and most influential outside Israel itself. The Jewish lobby in Congress is ignored at a politician's peril, and Jews represent one of the most significant minorities in many large cities. In this book, Dan Cohn-Sherbok returns to his home town of Denver, Colorado, home of "Dynasty". In the style of the celebrated books by Tony Palmer, he interviews members of the Jewish community and simply records their words. He also speaks to non-Jews whose lives bring them into daily contact with the Jews. Over 100 voices are sampled to give a varied and multifaceted picture. The book includes interviews with religious leaders, community leaders, the young, the old, Jewish American princesses (and princes!), business people, teachers and students, traditional functionaries, converts and low-lifers.
