Abstract:

In Jewish Population Studies 25 (Papers in Jewish Demography, 1989), 104-112. Jewish regional concentration has been a persistent feature of American Jewry. What does the Jewish migration towards the West mean for American Jews? There are several structural reasons to assume that Jewish communities in the West will be less cohesive and will be Jewishly weaker than those in areas of historical Jewish settlement. Three Jewish communities in the West (Los Angeles, Denver, and Phoenix) are compared with two in the Midwest (Milwaukee and Chicago).
