The story of the migration of the European Jewry to the United States has been the subject of many eminent studies, best-selling books and even blockbuster movies, but none has yet focused on the little-known, but highly significant, incremental aspect of that migration. This story of Jewish migration to North America, not always that straightforward for the Eastern European Jewry. Prejudice, poverty and exploitation resulted in many unintended 'stopovers' in Western Europe before facing the perils of the North Atlantic Ocean. One stopover was Ireland and, indeed, some never left, stayed prospered and then, a generation or two later, continued - Westward Ho! This presentation explores this journey at the last major 'stopover' at the edge of Western Europe in Ireland. It will examine its impact on the Irish Jewish Community over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, especially, its rise and eventual decline due to the continuing westward migration
