Discover the rich Jewish heritage of Sun City in this captivating profile of a multicultural gateway for immigrants and its impact on the history of the Southwest. A vibrant, bustling border town, El Paso, Texas was crucial in the resettlement of the U.S., especially for Jews fleeing Eastern Europe, who initially arrived in Mexico and South America. Their influence helped transform the town from a Wild West outpost to a thriving metropolis, with contributions to local government, business, healthcare, and the arts. The latest installment in filmmaker Isaac Artenstein’s Frontier Jews series vividly depicts, via family tales and historic photos, El Paso’s evolution and significance as a key cultural melting pot and once missing link in the Jewish American saga.
