Having fled persecution in the Old World, Eastern Europen Jews faced oppression in the New. If they survived the exploitation of the sweatshop and the squalor of tenement life, they found new treats in the perils of prosperity and the pressures of acculturation. This discussion examines how Jews adapted to life in the golden medina (golden land) and the price of their success.
