Three Generations of Jewish Women examines the connections between three generations of Jewish women, beginning with the generation of female holocaust survivors. This exploration spans a century, and creates a thorough discussion of the changing nature of Jewish culture and the role of women within it. What compelled the women of the first generation to leave their homes and come to the United States? In what ways did immigration alter their lives? Did the United States fulfill their expectations? What connections do these women have with the youngest bi-cultural generation? The study of these three generations sheds new light on relationships between women, and reveals a shared history and legacy, which binds them together and distinguishes them from other women.
