by Susan Goldman Rubin. Images from The Jewish Museum beautifully illustrate this history of Jews in America. The story began in 1654 when 23 Jews arrived as settlers in New Amsterdam. Rubin follows American Jewry through both well-known and lesser-known historical scenes. Waves of Jews emigrated from Eastern Europe, and many started as peddlers to become famous Jewish entrepreneurs such as the jeans-manufacturer Levi Strauss, Julius Rosenwald of Sears Roebuck and Hollywood’s Samuel Goldwyn and Louis B. Mayer. But Jews also had less-celebrated (but equally fascinating) roles in the history of America.

Book and delivery EXCELLENT!
The information, articles, photos, sorrows, tragedies of our Jews is presented clearly, better than any other book of its ilk. I recommend it 100% per cent, and more. Maggie Wise Riley

Produced in association with The Jewish Museum, this book is an

overview of Jewish life in America from the earliest Colonial days to the present. Eighteen chapters follow Jewish-American history chronologically, with a few chapters zeroing in on topics of particular interest such as the life of Rebecca Gratz or Irving Berlin's army experiences. The large, square volume with its many color photographs has the feel of a coffee-table book, and its short tid-bits of information suit it to browsing more than to research purposes.

Photographs and art objects from The Jewish Museum are large, well-reproduced, and clearly captioned, and the pages are made attractive with color accents (there is hardly a white page in the whole book!).

This book was named a 2004 Notable Children's Book of Jewish Content by the Association of Jewish Libraries.

Fully illustrated. L'Chaim! celebrates the 350th anniversary of the first recorded Jewish settlement in North America as well as the Jewish people from all over the world who, over the last three and a half centuries, have settled in communities throughout the continent. The process of becoming a Jewish American has meant retaining a connection to one's roots while integrating into a new culture. This book communicates a particularly American story as it reflects and illuminates some of the finest aspects of life in the United States: the potential for diversity to flourish, the possibility of overcoming political, economic, and social obstacles, and the creativity that is encouraged for developing a full life as both an American and a Jew.

Finally, there is a work for young people on the 350th anniversary of Jewish settlement in America that meets the high standards of adult books created for the 350th. Noted young adult book author Susan Goldman Rubin has written the junior version of American Judaism by Jonathan Sarna--the young person's book of the year for the 350th. L'Chaim achieves its purpose by focusing on individuals and families who have helped shape the American Jewish experience. Rubin is an award-winning writer who has written many biographies of creative people, so she is ideal to tell this story. The book is accompanied by extraordinary photographs of objects and images from the collection of the unsurpassed Jewish Museum in New York City.

What a wonderful book to read, to use as a reference, and to pass down to younger children and grandchildren in the future!
