Synopsis: It was a great adventure--the emigration in the 1880s of two million Jews from East Europe to the United States. Many settled in New York, where they attempted to maintain their own Yiddish culture even while making their way into American society. Howe tells the story of these people--from sweatshop to Hollywood studio, from yeshiva to university, every aspect of Jewish life is vividly depicted.

From the Publisher: "A stirring evocation of the adventure and trauma of migration."--Newsweek
