Torrent description

Did the first Jews come to the United States to escape the Nazis? No, earlier. Perhaps during the 1849 Gold Rush? Nope, still sooner! Would you believe that Jews were in America even before there was a United States? TRUE! In fact, 122 YEARS before the Declaration of Independence. Now you can discover the fascinating true story in this two-part PBS-series.
