Abstract
Immigrant Muslim clergy (imams) coming to America are currently facing many of the same issues, problems, and challenges faced by the immigrant Jewish clergy (rabbis) during the last half of the nineteenth century. This paper explores the parallels in situation between twenty-first century imams and nineteenth century rabbis immigrating to America with special attention to the striking similarities and the blatant differences experienced by both groups. Whereas the immigrating rabbis found their way and established themselves as leaders, the immigrating imams are struggling to find their way.
