Genealogy: Russian Jews Arriving In Texas


Galveston Texas was a port through which Jews came through when escaping the Russian army. I read one family historical account that stated that Jewish children were conscripted into the Russian army when they were as young as seven years old. Many modern day American Jews know they are Jewish but that’s about it. After World War I, in some areas, there weren’t that many Jews in America. Therefore they had no one to teach them their religion and culture. A lot of the German Jews who “assimilated” denied they were Jews.
