JULIUS ROSENWALD: A PORTRAIT OF AMERICAN JEWISH PHILANTHROPY

Julius Rosenwald (1862-1932), the son of a former peddler became one of the richest individuals in American history through his leadership of Sears, Roebuck. But more important than his wealth, the ways he used his money, particularly for African American and Jewish projects reflected a vision of philanthropy, of America, and Jewish values.
