about

How far can Jewish life in the South during Reconstruction (1863-1877) indeed be described as German in a period of American Jewry traditionally referred to as 'German Jewish' in historiography? To what extent were Jewish immigrants in the South acculturated to Southern identity and customs? Anton Hieke discusses the experience of Jewish immigrants in the Reconstruction South as exemplified by Georgia and the Carolinas. The book critically explores the shifting identities of German Jewish immigrants, their impact on congregational life, and of their identity as 'Southerners'.
