Middletown Jews by Dwight W. Hoover
Book Description"Middletown Jews...takes us, through nineteen fascinating interviews done in 1979, into the lives led by mainly first generation American Jews in a small mid-western city." -San Diego Jewish Times "...this brief work speaks volumes about the uncertain future of small-town American Jewry." -Choice "The book offers a touching portrait that admirably fills gaps, not just in Middletown itself but in histories in general." -Indianapolis Star "...a welcome addition to the small but growing number of monographs covering local aspects of American Jewish history." -Kirkus Reviews In Middletown, the landmark 1927 study of a typical American town (Muncie, Indiana), the authors commented, "The Jewish population of Middletown is so small as to be numerically negligible...[and makes] the Jewish issue slight." But WAS the "Jewish issue" slight? What did it mean to be a Jew in Muncie? That is the issue that this book seeks to answer. The Jewish experience in Muncie reflects what many similar communities experienced in hundreds of Middletowns across the midwest.
