Synopsis

The two-part PBS miniseries They Came for Good: A History of the Jews in the United States notes the effects of the influx of Jewish immigrants to America, as well as the development of Jewish heritage within the country after immigration. Part two, Taking Root, 1820-1880, presents famous Jewish peddlers like Levi Strauss, and defines the important role Jews played during industrialization. Internal struggles in the Jewish community, like familial decisions to reform or remain conservative, and the divisional effects of the Civil War are also discussed. Using period actors, the series reenacts the events that would shape American Jewish communities in the coming centuries. ~ Sarah Sloboda, Rovi
