Jews in the Early History of Texas

This session is dedicated to the memory of Bernard Rapoport, 1917-2012, a Texas Jew who made great contributions in many areas including education in the US and Israel; local and national politics; philanthropy, general and Jewish in the US and Israel; and libraries. It is hard to find an event in history in which Jews, broadly defined, did not participate. The early history of Texas, from the first colonization in the 1500's until the war against Mexico in 1836 which resulted in Texas independence, was no exception. This presentation discusses the most notable contributions made by Jews during that period of history.

Presented by Yaakov Aronson at the 2013 AJL Conference in Houston, TX.
