The wagon trains that moved westward with Jewish families traveled for the same reason as many settlers: opportunity. Continuous cycles of anti-Jewish oppression, deadly violence and forced poverty in Europe forced over two million Jewish refugees to seek out a better life in America. Planting roots, they epitomize the important legacy of immigration in America.

From Golda Meir to Wyatt Earp’s Jewish wife, all of the personalities highlighted in this documentary, provide a fresh and fascinating lens on Jewish life in America.
