The American Jewish Experience: A Comprehensive Website

Planning for a website that would have as its focus the history of Jews in America from the original period of settlement to current events and trends.

The American Jewish Experience website will focus on the history of Jews in America from the original period of settlement to current events and trends. The goal is to be comprehensive in interpreting the site's subject matter against the backdrop of issues in the humanities, including the role of American history relating to minority groups, Jewish involvement in the development of American culture and society, the obstacles overcome in adapting to American society, the interplay between religious and civic values, degrees of working relationships within and without the system of government and laws, and the nature of communal, organizational, and familial structures that serve to filter the American Jewish experience.
