As a result, from the outset of their residence in Memphis, Jews held positions of municipal leadership, were active supporters of Memphiss cultural and philanthropic activities, and aided in the course of racial integration. Narrating the life of Jews in Memphis from the antebellum period through the 1960s, Lewis artfully blends discussions of the Jewish communitys proactive impact on the citys development with its reactions to events local, national, and international. She vividly highlights their roles in and responses to the Civil War, late nineteenth-century immigration, Zionism, the world wars, the Holocaust, and the civil rights movement.

The result is an important work of Jewish, American, and Southern religious history.
