Abstract

Jews on the Frontier is a compelling account of the cultural and spiritual changes experienced by American Jews outside the main coastal cities and their large congregations before the large East-European emigration waves of the late Nineteenth-Century. As is often the case in historical works, it begins with what at a first glance seems like a modest lacuna, in this instance the apparent relative lack of research into pre-1880 American Jewish History, and aims to leverage the newfound materials and insights into a broad and culturally significant observation.
