Agricultural Activities of the Jews in America

By Leonard G. Robinson

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 1913

The author outlines the history of Jewish agricultural activity in America. In order to provide rich context for this focus, he begins with a detailed overview of current (as of 1912) agricultural settlement in Palestine, as well as information on Jewish agricultural activity in Russia, Western Europe, Canada and South America. Moving on to American Jewish agricultural history, the author briefly discusses early Jewish agriculture before focusing on the current (1912) Jewish agriculture movement's beginnings in the latter 19th century. He provides details of specific schools, colonies and other locations, and discusses the specific organizations and funders behind the movement.
