These intellectuals, many of whom were participants in the Russian revolutionary movement, believed, in Abraham Cahan's words, that there was "a political meaning [to] their journey to America" (Education ). The work of Jewish Daily Forward editor and writer Abraham Cahan () offers one generative starting point from which to build a more rounded representation of Jewish Americans' engagement with education. Cahan underscored different dimensions of learning in his various professional roles.

To the Editor: I read Irving Howe’s review of The Education of Abraham Cahan [Books in Review, March] with interest, and I agree with Mr. Howe that Cahan’s five-volume opus is truly a classic. However, I disagree with Mr. Howe’s gnawing doubt whether Cahan knew that he was working not only “toward” but “for” the disintegration of Yiddish culture in America. The paper was always anti-communist, and Cahan was always Jewish though never religious. In his autobiography, The Education of Abraham Cahan, he had little to say about his private life. Lipsky follows that example with scant information regarding Cahan at home. A straightforward narrative of the public life of a complex, commanding newspaperman.
