Studies in Contemporary Jewry an Annual XV 1999

This chapter examines the relationship between Orthodox American Jews, the city and the suburbs. It argues that this relationship is a dynamic one and that where Orthodox Jews choose to live continues to be a reflection of who they are and how they express their religious identities. Moreover, Orthodox Jews — unlike other of their co-religionists — have been able to make areas of Jewish scarcity, even in the most unlikely areas, flourish: increasingly, they have changed the communities in which they have settled rather than being themselves changed.

Keywords:   American Jews, Orthodox Jews, suburbs, city, Jewish communities
