By 1870, San Francisco was home to the largest American Jewish community outside of New York City. Who were these Jews who moved to the edge of the world? How did they impact San Francisco? How, in turn, did living in San Francisco impact these Jews and their communities? With the documentary, American Jerusalem: Jews and the Making of San Francisco (2013) as our centerpiece, we’ll explore how and why Jews came to California, settled San Francisco, and helped to build the city.
