The 350th Anniversary of American Jewish Life

By Jonathan D. Sarna

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Fall 2004

The author states that historical markers like the 350th anniversary of American Jewish life can serve as teachable moments - all-too-rare opportunities to reach beyond the academy and excite a larger public about what it is that we do. Most importantly, they help us to advance our fields by stimulating scholarship and making possible a wide range of conferences that (at their best) promote creative ideas and lively academic interactions.
