"The Effects of the Espionage Spy Trial of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg on the American Jewish Community"















Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, avowed communists from New York City, were arrested in the summer of 1950, tried for conspiracy to commit espionage, found guilty by a jury in 1951, condemned to death, and executed in 1953. They left two orphaned sons aged 10 and 7 at the time of the executions. The effect on America's Jewish community, still moving gradually into the mainstream of American life, was numbing.
