"Historian Ellen Eisenberg is an articulate and engaging writer. In Embracing a Western Identity; Jewish Oregonians, 1849-1950, she brings a scholarly yet accessible perspective to the intriguing story of the Jewish experience in Oregon."

Jeanne Abrams, Annals of Wyoming: The Wyoming History Journal


"[Eisenberg] has offered a valuable and compelling counterpoint to a common American Jewish narrative."

Mark I. Greenberg, Western Washington University


"If [The Jewish Oregon Story] is equally strong, then Eisenberg will have written the definitive works on the Jewish Oregon experience."
