A History of Tulsa’s Jewish Community
This film tells the story of Tulsa’s Jewish Community from its arrival in America, to its settling in Indian Territory, to its contemporary commitment to our city. Highlights include Jewish-owned retail businesses, oil and related industry pioneers, and local philanthropies that have helped Tulsa to grow and prosper. The film explores the human condition of our city’s collective history. Themes of persistence in the face of hardship and discrimination, institutional racism, the taking of responsibility and ownership for one’s community, and dreams of a better life are addressed.

This film focuses on the history of Tulsa, Oklahoma, a city known for extremes. Interwoven into the fabric of the film are details of arguably the nation’s most devastating race riot: The Tulsa Race Riot; the struggles the Muscogee Creek faced during and after the Trail of Tears; a remarkable retrospective of the famed Mother Road, Route 66; the fabulous wealth, architecture, arts & philanthropy from oil and the economic results of relying only on oil speculation. The film answers the important question of why history is important.
