Abstract

Because the first Jews came to America in 1654, a "stream of books and essays" (p. xi) has been published in recent years to commemorate the 250th anniversary of that event. Among these have been anthologies focusing on specific states and regions, such as Lone Stars of David: The Jews of Texas (2007), edited by Hollace Ava Weiner and Kenneth D. Roseman, and Jewish Life in the American West (2002), edited by Ava F. Kahn. Jewish Roots in Southern Soil (2006) is a "timely contribution" (p. xi) to that genre.
