Product Overview

For one hundred fifty years, the Jewish residents of Scranton have contributed to the vitality of the city. In the nineteenth century, Jews immigrated to Scranton from Germany and eastern Europe, and Russian resettlement families arrived during the twentieth century. As merchants and manufacturers, they sold diamonds and groceries and produced dental supplies and ginger ale. They achieved recognition as doctors, lawyers, publishers, financiers, soldiers, and sailors. Dignitaries and scholars, such as Eleanor Roosevelt and Elie Wiesel, have been their guests, and they have hosted personalities and pop stars, such as Miss America and the Mouseketeers. Most consistently, the Orthodox, Conservative, and Reformed congregations of Scranton have established synagogues and community centers, maintaining a commitment to their faith and families that extends to the present day.
