They Came For Good: A History of The Jews In The United States - Part 1 : 1654-1820 (VHS & DVD)

Order #: 01290
They Came For Good is the first comprehensive series to tell the little known story of the 250 years of Jewish immigration to America. From the first Brazilian Jews who landed on Manhatan Island in 1654 through the end of the 19th Century, over 250,000 Jews came to the United States. Thoroughly researched using letters, diaries and documents of the time, the series also brings to light the first Jewish Americans who made significant contributions to American society.Please note that we have place thisitem in the "Sephardic" catagory due to the fact that the first Jews to arrive in the US were Sephardi and their contributions as Sephardic Jews have largely gone un-noticed. Though this video includes early Jewish European immigrations to the US, the majority of the individuals presented --Asher Levey, Mordechai Manuel Noah, Uriah Levy, etc-- were Jews of Spanish ancestry.A second volume in this series is also available, "Taking Root: 1820 - 1880Approximately 60 Minutes in ColorAvailable on Video& DVD
