The Jews: Their Origins, in America, in Connecticut. A Curriculum Guide. The Peoples of Connecticut Multicultural Ethnic Heritage Series No. 3. Second Edition.
Klitz, Sally Innis
This curriculum guide explores the Jewish ethnic and religious community in the United States generally, and specifically in Connecticut. Intended as a resource tool for studying the Jewish cultural heritage and traditions, the material may be used among Jews and non-Jews. The guide is divided into three parts. Part one is a detailed account of Jewish religious and political history. Part two contains information on the history of Jewish immigration to the United States; the assimilation of Jews into American society; the impact of Jewish culture and religion in American history; and the development of the Jewish cultural community within a pluralistic society. Part three describes the history and organization of the Jews in Connecticut and provides opportunities for students to conduct research on the Jews. Each section of the guide includes a bibliography, a list of instructional media and supplementary teaching aids, and suggested activities and discussion topics. (Author/MJL)
