What was life like during colonial times?
The first Jewish settlers in colonial America arrived in 1654. They came by ship in search of religious freedom. By 1776, there were 2,500 Jews living there. In this engrossing book, children will learn about the daily life of Jews during the colonial times—the homes they lived in, the foods they ate, the work they did, the schools they went to, and the games they played.
Jewish Life in America during Colonial Times is part of The Way It Was, a series of fascinating books about everyday Jewish life in American history.
Each volume includes authentic photos and eyewitness accounts, as well as engaging text and design.
