Front Cover
Jewish Publication Society of America, 1982 - Biography & Autobiography - 220 pages
The story of the Jewish immigration to the United States in the early years of the century has been fully described in a variety of publications. Less well known is the story of the more than 25,000 Levantine Sephardim who entered the United States between 1899 and 1925. La America, the Judeo-Spanish-language national weekly newspaper founded in 1910 is a welcome contribution to an understanding of this long neglected aspect of the American Jewish experience. Rabbi Angel discovers in the newspaper reports and editorials and brings to the readers" attention the fascinating heritage of American Sephardic Jews.
