A Time for Planting, Volume 1

The First Migration, 1654-1820

Volume I: A Time for Planting: The First Migration, 1654-1820

In the autumn of 1654, twenty-three Jews aboard the bark Sainte Catherine landed at the town of New Amsterdam to establish the first permanent Jewish settlement in North America. In A Time for Planting, Eli Faber recounts these earliest days of Jewish life in America, as Jews from Lisbon to Amsterdam to London extended the wanderings of their centuries-old diaspora.

Reviews

"Because of the small numbers involved, Eli Faber in this work can follow families, specific communities, and even individuals in gratifying detail. Throughout, his focus is on the persisting tension between preserving the distinctive community on the one hand and, on the other, seeking some identification with the surrounding society... In workmanlike prose Faber demonstrates how patterns of accommodation and survival were set well before large numbers of Jews began arriving in this latter day promised land."
