A history of the accomplishments of the Jews in St Louis. This book shows how the community grew into two sections - one which centred on relations of Jews with fellow Jews - and the other where they interacted with the non-Jewish population, assuming significant roles in the town's development.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Walter Ehrlich "has written the comprehensive history of the Jews of St. Louis. . . . This is a good book and an important book. It will be consulted by researchers as long as a copy exists. It is a treasure trove for those wanting to know about a specific synagogue, charitable organization, or community leader."--"American Historical Review"


""Zion in the Valley" is elegantly written, and Ehrlich locates the story of St. Louis Jewry within the larger context of American and American Jewish history. . . . An excellent historical portrayal of a Midwestern Jewish community and makes a valuable contribution to the historiography of the urban American Jewish experience."--"Journal of American History"


"This book contains rich anecdotal information on a century of Jewish life in a city that served as the gateway to the West. Many of the events typify life in other large cities; tensions between traditionalists and Reformers with respect to theological and communal issues and generational and ethnic differences."--"Jewish Book World"
