Three Seattle-based authors draw on hundreds of newspaper stories, articles, and oral histories in this first history of the diverse group of immigrants who formed the nucleus of Washington Jewry and the institutions they created. The text spans roughly 125 years, from the 1850s to 1970s; a brief epilogue reports on the past three decades. Coverage includes regional politics, commercial and business enterprises, education, philanthropy by voluntary organizations, and contributions of Jewish musicians and artists. Scholarly, but written for the general reader. Illustrated with b&w photographs. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
