“The Formation of American Judaism” a book display in the Judaica Suite

In celebration of Jewish American Heritage Month, a small selection of our very special early American Judaica books (1776-1872) was on display in the Judaica Suite throughout the month of May. If you missed the physical display, and would like to read about these books, please see the attached file of display labels. Each label describes the individuals who authored or edited the books, the printing houses that published them, and how these works and their authors influenced and shaped Jewish American religious, social and cultural life.
