Volume II: A Time for Gathering. Between 1820 and 1880, European Jews arrived in the United States in ever greater numbers. While later Jewish immigrants would criticize their "rush" to assimilation, the Jews of this period created the institutions that continue to shape Jewish life in America. In A Time for Gathering, Hasia Diner describes this "second wave" of Jewish migration.
