From immigrant beginnings in city tenements to modern-day life suburban life, Betty Hoffman's Jewish West Hartford profiles the vigorous and vibrant Semitic community of Connecticut's capital city. Hartford's Jewish population has undergone dramatic and dynamic transformations since the Puritan era. Author Betty Hoffman bears witness to the key changes, including assimilation and suburbanization, while focusing on the Jewish-oriented institutions and civic associations that have come to anchor and define the community. Interlaced with poignant first-person recollections, Jewish West Hartford provides an engrossing chronicle that is both thoughtful and affectionate.
