Jewish Values: Suitcase of Dreams, A: Immigration Stories from the Skirball Cultural Center

32 p.
Note: 
Painting, family photographs, and objects found in the collection of the Skirball Cultural Center are used to tell the story of Jewish immigration from Eastern Europe. Sharp reproductions of each item, painting, or photo and a wide, paperback format both suggest and show the reasons for leaving one's homeland, what was taken and what was left behind, and what the journeys were like. The succinct text asks readers questions that involve them in the immigration process and help create meaning. This constructivist approach is effective and helps make the book a stand-out.
