Annotation A history of Jewish culture and community in California from 1849 to 1880. When news of the Gold Rush broke, recent immigrants from Central Europe arrived in the port of San Francisco, including thousands of Jews. As they branched out throughout Northern California, they built synagogues and cemeteries, set up businesses and schools, established benevolent societies, and created close-knit communities that brought economic stability and social benefits to mining camps and rural towns.
