This chapter focuses on klezmer cities in America. These musicians transferred to the United States as part of the construction of a transatlantic East European Jewish community life during the great wave of immigration of the 1880s to the 1920s. Klezmer flourished everywhere in what the Jews of the time called “the provinces,” not only on the Eastern seaboard, but in smaller, faraway places like Milwaukee.

Keywords:   Jews, musicians, Jewish communities, klezmer city, Eastern seaboard
