This chapter reviews the following books: To the Other Shore: The Russian Jewish Intellectuals Who Came to America by Steven Cassedy, The Jewish East Side 1881–1924 by Milton Hindus (ed.), Jewish Immigrant Associations and American Identity in New York by Daniel Soyer, and New York Jews and the Great Depression: Uncertain Promise by Beth S. Wenger. These diverse works illustrate both the rewards and the hazards of scholarship that focuses on what may be called heroic or presumptively heroic chapters in the New York Jewish story.

Keywords:   megashtetl, Jews, Jewish history, New York
