Originally, as per Megan Boswell, director of design and development, American Girl, Rebecca's hair color was debated for years. Rebecca's hair started out being dark auburn, then went to dark brown. Then the company worried dark brown would be too typical and predictable.
There is a six book series written by Jacqueline Dembar Greene, who has published a historical book about Jewish immigrants for young adults, Rebecca’s six-book series
- Meet Rebecca
- Rebecca and Ana
- Candlelight for Rebecca
- Rebecca and the Movies
- Rebecca to the Rescue
- Changes for Rebecca
Technically, she is the second Jewish doll American Girl has now to offer but the first with the historical dolls. In 2001 American Girl launched Lindsay Bergman, who was one of the “Girl of the Year” series, and Lindsay was available for that year only. Although, I have seen her on sale on ebay new for a hefty price or used for a moderate price.
Rebecca’s release date was originally scheduled to be June 1, but it was moved to coincide with Manhattan’s Israel Day parade.
