Jewish Voices of the California Gold Rush
A Documentary History, 1849-1880
(American Jewish Civilization Series)
Ava F. Kahn
In 1848, news of the California Gold Rush swept the world. Aspiring miners, merchants, and entrepreneurs flooded California seeking gold. The cry of instant wealth was also heard and answered by Jewish communities in Europe and the eastern United States. While all Jewish immigrants arriving in the mid-nineteenth century were looking for religious freedoms and economic stability, there were pre-existing Jewish social and religious structures on the East Coast. California's Jewish immigrants became founders of their own social, cultural, and religious institutions.
