The field of American Jewish studies has recently trained its focus on
the transnational dimensions of its subject, reflecting in more
sustained ways than before about the theories and methods of this
approach. Yet, much of the insight to be gained from seeing American
Jewry as constitutively entangled in many ways with other Jewries has
not yet been realized. Transnational American Jewish studies are still
in their infancy.
This issue of PaRDeS presents current research on the multiple
entanglements of American with Central European, especially
German-speaking Jewries in the 19th and 20th centuries. The articles
reflect the wide range of topics that can benefit from a transnational
understanding of the American Jewish experience as shaped by its foreign
entanglements.
