This paper provides an historical timeline of Jewish immigration to America, focusing on the past 150 years. It shows how this wave of immigration from Eastern Europe in the late 1800's changed the demographics of the Jewish population in American in particular and the entire American population, in general. The paper looks at how this ethnic group blended in and the sub-culture it created. It then turns to laws which effected immigration and how this impacted the Jews of America.
From the Paper:"The immigration of Jewish people to the United States during the 19th and early 20th century represents one of the major culture shifts of our country's history. The United States went from having a small group of Jewish citizens at the start of the Revolutionary War to having the world's largest population of Jews in a period of only about 150 years. This event profoundly affected American society at all levels and has had a lasting effect on our commerce, economy and international relations. In the process, these and other immigrants demonstrated a level of determination and resilience that would be hard for most people today to match"
