Jewish life in the industrial promised land, 1855-2005.


Jewish life in the industrial promised land, 1855-2005.

Faires, Nora and Nancy Hanflik.

Michigan State U. Press


222 pages




Hanflik's master's thesis ( U. of Michigan-Flint, 2000) became the basis for an art exhibit titled "A Century of Jewish Life in Flint," which in turn led to this study coauthored with Faires (history and women's studies, Western Michigan U.). The authors trace demographic trends, and the civic/cultural life and challenges of the evolving Jewish community in "Vehicle City" during boom and bust times as a General Motors' town. The well-illustrated book includes first-person perspectives, and a glossary of terms and organizations.
