With a Little Help from My Friends…

Nov 2nd, 2016

The latest addition to this website is a co-authored essay by David M. Freidenreich and Kristin Esdale ’16, “With a Little Help from My Friends: Jewish Mutual Assistance in Nineteenth-Century Maine.” This is a pre-publication draft of an article that will appear in Maine History, but perhaps not until 2020 due to a backlog of articles awaiting publication. Not only does this article describe the ways in which some of Maine’s earliest Jews tried to support one another, its very existence reflects the faculty-student collaboration at the heart of Colby’s Maine Jewish History Project. We all benefit from a little help!
