Book Excerpt : University of Mississippi and Harvard educated author, Robert Lewis Berman, has researched and written a compelling history of what was once a relatively large Jewish community, located in one of the least expected placesÂ–Lexington, Mississippi, a small rural town in the heart of the Bible belt. Unlike some other places in the South and nation, it has been a comparatively peaceful area, with little, if any racial violence and no demonstrations of anti-Semitism since Jews came to that little town well over a century and a half ago. Lexington is one of the most ecumenical communities in America. A House of David in the Land of Jesus consists of true heart-warming stories about the lives of the entire Jewish community in this Mississippi town, their outreach, their accomplishments, their failures, their triumphs and their tragediesÂ–including their close and lasting relationships with the Christian community, both black and white. ItÂ's a history worth reading and emulating.
