Hear the stories of Jewish Portland, whose roots stretch back to the gold rush, whose heart is “the old neighborhood” of South Portland and the memories of its residents, and whose identity is alive and well in synagogues and community institutions. Author Polina Olsen recounts the history of this richly layered community through a collection of letters, interviews and stories. Olsen is a researcher, writer and author of the book Stories from Jewish Portland. She writes a history column, “Looking Back,” for the Jewish Review and also leads walking tours of Southwest Portland.
