West of Hester Street
Though most Jewish immigrants came to the U.S. via ports on the east coast, this video tells the story of those Jews who moved away from the major centers of New York, Baltimore, and Boston. Galveston, Texas was chosen by American Jewish leaders as a new port of entry in an attempt to combat increasing anti-immigrant sentiment. Narrated by noted actor Sam Jaffee, this documentary offers a fascinating look at a little-known chapter in Jewish-American life. ~ Cara Saposnik, Rovi
