          GEP/GFR:Meets  SS.   Also  listed  as HIST
          370.   This   course   will   explore  the

          political trends that have shaped American
          Jewish  life from  the seventeenth century
          to  today. It will proceed chronologically
          through  the major eras that demarcate the
          American   Jewish   experience:   1)   the
          colonial  and  early  national  period  of
          sparse    Jewish    settlement;   2)   the
          nineteenth  century  rise  of  an American
          Jewish   population  of  Central  European
          origin;   3)  the  late-19th  to  mid-20th
          century   era   of   mass   migration  and
          adjustment  of  Jews from  Eastern Europe;
          and  4)  the second half  of the twentieth
          century    to    the   present,   a   time
          characterized  by  the  development  of  a
          specifically American Jewish community (or
          communities)   amidst   smaller  waves  of
          Jewish   migration  from  Europe  and  the
          Middle  East,  as  well  as  the  rise  of
          American Jewry to a position of leadership
          among world Jewry.
