Abstract: In the late nineteen century and early decades of twentieth the scholars, politicians, and the popular press were accentuat?ng the threat approaching the Nordic or Anglo - Saxons - the real face of Americans, coming from the impoverished Irish, and later the Eastern and Southern European impoverished immigrants, among them Jews, and their whiteness was under suspicion, and anti - Semitism was widely adopted. Anti - Semitism attitudes thoroughly changed after World War II and they became middle - class. 1944 Serviceman?s Readjustment Act, the most significant program in the American history, was compiled to provide prosperous economic large, multinational corporations with skilled clerical, technical, and managerial hands. For this purpose, the government provided financial support during the job search, small loans, and educational benefits, including tuition and living expenses. This - the most transformational postwar regulation made Jewish upward mobility to the middle class happen together with the Jewish outstanding endeavor and strive towards educational accomplishments.
