Summary New York Jews, so visible and integral to the culture, economy, and politics of America’s greatest city, have eluded the grasp of historians for decades. Surprisingly, no comprehensive history of New York Jews has appeared before now. City of Promises pioneers a path-breaking interpretation of a Jewish urban community at once the largest in Jewish history and the most important in the modern world.--from box set packaging.
