important New York immigrant novel which dramatized the gap between old world emigrees and their now-fully-American children, embodying and expecting the package of mythos that the new land promised them, the clash frequently symbolized by the practice of the new immigrants of tossing their phylacteries (Tefillin) into New York Harbor, before their steamer docked.
