Summary
Describing herself as growing up in "a kosher-salami-on-sliced-white- bread family in the 1950s, Hoffman (anthropology, Central Connecticut State U.) studies the exodus and resettlement of Soviet Jews in Hartford since 1975 in the context of the earlier massive Russian Jewish emigration wave of 1881-1930. The author analyzes how Jewish life and identity were transformed in both the Old and New Country. The dozen photos include an illegal Passover seder in the Ukraine (1950), immigrants of different eras, and volunteers-- including the author--helping them. c. Book News Inc
