In the first analytical history of this important Jewish community, David G. Dalin and Jonathan Rosenbaum place Hartford within the larger contexts of American social, urban, ethnic, and Jewish history by comparing its unique experience to those of New England and other American Jewish communities.

The authors discuss Jewish firsts particular to Hartford but significant for America including the entrance of Herman P. Koppelmann, Abraham A. Ribicoff, and Joseph I. Lieberman into national politics; the early espousal of Zionism by all factions within the Jewish community; and the establishment of one of the first day schools outside New York City.

Drawing extensively on such primary sources as synagogue minute books, newspapers, family memoirs, scrapbooks, correspondence, sermons, Jewish organisational records, and an important new collection of oral histories, the authors skilfully document internal divisions and issues of communal cohesiveness. This careful study will be pivotal for anyone, scholar or casual reader alike, interested in American social or ethnic history and the immigrant experience.
