Unlike the other cultural groups covered in the People of Wisconsin series, the Jews who have made their home in Wisconsin are united not by a single country of origin, but by a shared history and set of religious beliefs. This diverse group found their way to America’s heartland over several centuries from Germany, Russia, and beyond, some fleeing violence and persecution, others searching for new opportunities, but all making important contributions to the fabric of this state’s history. Through detailed historical information and personal accounts, Sheila Terman Cohen brings to life the stories of their various trials and triumphs. Jews in Wisconsin details their battles against anti-Semitism, their efforts to participate in the communities they joined, and their successes at holding onto their own cultural identities. In addition to excerpts of Cohen’s many interviews with Wisconsin Jews, Jews in Wisconsin also features the compelling journals of German immigrant Louis Heller, a tradesman who established himself in Milwaukee, and Russian immigrant Azriel Kanter, who details the perilous journey his family embarked on to escape anti-Semitism in his home country and make a new life in Wisconsin.

The Jewish community has a distinguished heritage in Milwaukee, and Jewish ©migr©s were an integral part of the pioneer fabric of the area. The 1840s saw the first large influx of Jews to Wisconsin, primarily to urban Milwaukee. They quickly became leaders in business, politics, and the arts. Milwaukee's Congregation Emanu-El B'ne Jeshurun, founded in 1856, was one of the state's first congregations and is still going strong. Over the years, social clubs, arts associations, women's benevolent societies, and political organizations were formed. Milwaukee's distinguished residents have included Victor Louis Berger, who was America's first Socialist congressman, and Golda Meir, who became prime minister of Israel. Today Sen. Herb Kohl, owner of the Milwaukee Bucks basketball team, is proud of his city ties. The story of Milwaukee's Jewish community offers a view of an intense group of citizens who cared about their hometown and their ancestral homeland, as well as civic and social causes.

These fourteen interviews of Holocaust survivors who settled in Wisconsin assign names and faces to what might otherwise be an abstract reckoning of terror and inhumanity. They describe the richness and variety of pre-war Jewish life in Europe; the advent of proscriptive laws, arrests, and deportation; the unspeakable horrors of the Nazi camps; and ultimately the liberation and postwar experiences of the survivors. They show how Jews in different parts of Europe experienced the Holocaust - ranging from Holland and Germany, where Jews were integrated into the nation's educated and professional classes, to Poland and Lithuania, where there had long existed a tradition of overt anti-Semitism. All suffered for their ethnic origins or religious beliefs, yet no two stories are alike. The few who survived Dachau and Auschwitz have very different stories to tell than those who were interned in Italy or who lived in comparatively peaceful exile in China. Remembering the Holocaust helps us to see the survivors as individuals, each with his or her own unique perspective, rather than primarily as victims.

A professor of English at a Jesuit university. All share their reflections on the interconnectedness of identities and ideas in People of the Book, the first collection in which Jewish-American scholars examine how their Jewishness has shaped and influenced their intellectual endeavors, and how their intellectual work has deepened their sense of themselves as Jews. The contributors are highly productive and respected Jewish-American scholars, critics, and teachers from departments of English, history, American studies, Romance literature, Slavic studies, art, women's studies, comparative literature, anthropology, Judaic studies, and philosophy. Nearly an equal mix of men and women, the authors of these analytical and autobiographical essays include white Jews and black Jews; orthodox, conservative, reform, and totally secular Jews; Jews by birth and Jews by conversion; heterosexual Jews and homosexual Jews; past presidents of the Modern Language Association and American Studies Association and young scholars at the start of their careers.

Whereas Mrs. Rixford's earlier work traced the branches of her maternal and paternal lines and the main branches of her husband's family to the Mayflower and other eminent American lineage societies, this work extends many of those connections to the royal and noble families of Europe. The notable ancestors traced by the compiler include Cerdic, first of the West Saxon kings; Alfred the Great; Robert Bruce; Kings Henry I, II, and III; Kings Edward I, II, and III; and many lines through Charlemagne, Louis I, the Earls of Warren, the Dukes of Normandy, the Royal House of Portugal, the House of Capet, the Counts of Anjoy, the Kings of Jerusalem, and more. In the same volume Mrs. Rixford also shows how several Mayflower lines are connected to all the members of the Vermont Society of Mayflower Descendants. If you have an interest in one of the following royal, noble or Mayflower households, this book may contain the link you are seeking: Aquitaine, Angouleme, Anjoy, Baskerville, Beauchamp, Bray, Bulkeley, Capet, Castille, Cheney, James Chilton, Francis Cooke, Courtenay, Rixford, De Vere, Farleigh-Hungerford, Devereux, Douglas, Drake, Eaton, Ferrers, Fitz-Alan, Flanders, Graves, Greene, Gregory, Hainault, Heydon, Johnson, William Latham, Lawrence (John and Isaac), Lisle, Marshall, Milbourne, Moore, Mowbray, Phelps, Port, Province, Rogers, Russell, Seymour, De Spineto, Smith and Georges, Sir Henry Smith, Stanley, Throckmorton, Tailefer, Vermandois, Warren, Washburn, Washington, Winnington (Wynnington), Gov.

On Jewish Learning collects essays, speeches, and letters that express Rosenzweig's desire to reconnect the profound truths of Judaism with the lives of ordinary people. An assimilated Jew and scholar of German philosophy, Rosenzweig was on the point of conversion to Christianity when the experience of a Yom Kippur service in 1913 brought him back to Judaism, and he began to study with philosopher Hermann Cohen. Seeking how to be an observant Jew in the modern world, Rosenzweig refused to reduce the traditions of Jewish law to mere rituals, customs, and folkways. His aim for himself and for others was to find Judaism by living it, and to live it by knowing it more deeply.

"Starting with the days when massive glaciers covered the landscape, Van Ells brings us on a journey through the fascinating history of the Badger State. Wisconsin remembers the French voyageurs, the brutal Black Hawk War, the booming migration of thousands of settlers, its progressive political traditions, and the famous Vietnam protests at the University of Wisconsin." "Included are recommended museums, state parks, and other attractions. Birthplace of such notables as Frank Lloyd Wright and Georgia O'Keeffe, Wisconsin is a state rich in culture that easily outdoes the stereotypes of harsh winters and sprawling flat American dairy land."--BOOK JACKET.
