The World of Our Mothers: The Lives of Jewish Immigrant Women
Oral histories of forty-six women form the core of this book, which chronicles the lives of Jewish immigrant women from their origins in Russia and Poland to their resettlement in the United States in the early twentieth century. While the women differed in many ways, they all shared a cultural heritage that was marked by the influence that mothers seemed to have in shaping the attitudes of their daughters towards husbands and children. The age at which these women emigrated also affected their subsequent adjustment.

Originally published in 1988.
