Migdal Zophim & Farming in the Jewish Colonies of South Jersey

midgal zophim

In 1889, Moses Klein published Migdal Zophim, a collection of essays that offers farming—both in Palestine and New Jersey—as a solution to the crisis of Jews fleeing Eastern European persecution. This republication supplements Klein’s historical work with twenty additional accounts of the New Jersey farming colonies of Alliance, Rosenhayn and Carmel, dating from 1882 to 1907. Twenty original photographs have been reproduced along with twenty-three additional photographs not printed in the first edition. Read descriptions of South Jersey’s Jewish farming colonies as voiced by the early settlers and their contemporaries.
