Abstract

The central purpose of this work is a study of Adat Beyt Moshe, America's "First Colored Jewish Community", in Elwood, New Jersey. They comprise a group of Negroes who believe their ancestry to be remnant Hebrew and are implementing a socio-religious movement to "reclaim others of their kind" and return to Israel.
