Dallas is one of the largest cities in Texas and has one of the largest Jewish communities in the state. German Jews arrived in Dallas as part of the mid-nineteenth century immigration to Texas from the German principalities following their revolutions. They established the city's first Jewish cemetery in 1854. The small but growing Jewish community wanted a permanent religious structure as well as a rabbi to conduct services and to offer religious education for children.

Jewish life in the United States is too often told from an East Coast perspective. Lone Stars of David presents a different panorama, with narratives of Jews who ventured to Texas before the battle of the Alamo, who fought for the Confederacy, who herded cattle up the Chisholm Trail, who drilled for oil, and who forged Jewish communities far from New York’s Lower East Side. These essays also describe how Texas Jews faced the Ku Klux Klan and how they respond today to Christian fundamentalism. This anthology examines the famous, with a close-up look at Neiman-Marcus, the chain synonymous with remarkable luxuries. It profiles Zale jewelers, founded by a young immigrant who grew into an international business icon. Another essay opens a window to the Dell Computer Corporation, with the story of Michael Dell, the college dropout whose philanthropy changed the course of the Austin Jewish community. Written by historians, journalists, and rabbis who have experienced Texas firsthand, these essays challenge stereotypes. One chapter discounts the impact of crypto-Jews who fled the Spanish Inquisition for the New World. Another defies conventional wisdom about southern views toward Zionism. El Paso emerges as the unlikely home of a Holocaust museum. The book’s essay on Jews in Texas politics analyzes the import of populist candidate Kinky Friedman and introduces Marjorie Arsht, a grassroots organizer whose living room was the setting for Republican George H. W. Bush’s first foray into politics. The Jewish population of Texas totals 131,000, a mere 0.6 percent of the state’s residents, yet its impact has been widespread. This anthology explores the resiliency, diversity, and adaptability of Jews in the Lone Star State, a place with its own powerful sense of identity.

I was first attracted to this book because our former Rabbi Ken Roseman was one of the editors. I'm not sure how much he was involved. The accounts of the various pioneers are interesting but, I can't help but think of ways it could have been better. It seems that they took a strictly factual approach to the material and didn't try to humanize these folks so we could relate to them or understand their motivation in being Texas pioneers. Also, for some of these people, their Jewishness was really just a footnote. The current generation of their families doesn't even practice the faith. This book definitely belongs in local libraries.

Very interesting readings material I highly recommend it.

I especially enjoyed it because a friend of mine was brought up in Texas and he was delighted to read information of which he was unaware concerning both sides of his family. He also found that there were chapters about people that he had known in his youth. I had purchased the book for him to pass on to his son and grandchildren.

Interesting book. Life on the border isn't easy and being Jewish just complicates things-but we hang in there and we make it work! Definitely worth the read.

This anthology is a must for those who are interested in Jewish life in America.
The Jews of the South have made a remarkable difference in the South, and this is a fine resource at which to start to understand.
Excellent information for Jews and others.

This book is packed full of very interesting information. I saw it at a friends house and just had to have it. It is worth the purchase for this bit of history.
