Wrestling with the Angels: A History of Jewish Los Angeles



Wrestling with the Angels: A History of Jewish Los Angeles is a comprehensive description of the history of Jewish Los Angeles set against a backdrop of the broader general history of the city starting from its beginnings under Spanish rule in the late 1700s. The book documents the arrival of the first Jewish citizens, the "eight bachelors" who came in 1850, and continues through the years to present-day Los Angeles. The book culminates with a vision of the dynamic Jewish Renaissance of today, and offers a view into the future through a representative cross-section of Jewish organizations that provide leadership and infrastructure for today's thriving Jewish community.
