This magisterial work chronicles the 350-year history of the Jewish religion in America. Tracing American Judaism from its origins in the colonial era through the present day, Jonathan Sarna explores the ways in which Judaism adapted in this new context. How did American culture - predominantly Protestant and overwhelmingly capitalist - affect Jewish religion and culture? And how did American Jews shape their own communities and faith in the new world? Jonathan Sarna, a preeminent scholar of American Judaism, tells the story of individuals struggling to remain Jewish while also becoming American. He offers a dynamic and timely history of assimilation and revitalisation, of faith lost and faith regained. The first comprehensive history of American Judaism in over fifty years, this book is both a celebration of 350 years of Jewish life in America and essential reading for anyone interested in American religion and life.… (més)

A comprehensive survey of the entirety of American Jewish history. It is written for the general reader but does not lack at all in depth or breadth. It is backed by original sources primarily derived from the Reform movement, ostensibly inasmuch as that is the movement that really, according to the author, gathered momentum after reaching this side of the Atlantic. In their search for religious freedom in America, many Jews who began life as Orthodox Jews in Europe sought to free themselves from the constraints of literalist renditions of Torah, halachah and "old-fashioned" liturgies in an attempt to assimilate into the New World where, it was hoped, people could be judged not on their race or religion. Jew immigrants, like the Christians before them, wanted to be judged on who they were as individuals in accordance with "modern" humanist thought that stemmed largely from Renaissance thinkers, albeit with a Jewish slant in most instances. Sarna takes the reader through the major Jewish philosophers who were instrumental in growing the religion and leaves the reader with a sense that Jews can likely tell where their people are headed since there is too much deja vu all over again.If you have any desire to know about American Jewish social and intellectual history, this book belongs in your library.
