Jewish Migration in Postwar America: The Case of Miami and Los Angeles

By Deborah Dash Moore

Oxford University Press, 1992

In Studies in Contemporary Jewry 8, 102-117. This essay offers a historical perspective on the migration process that created new American Jewish communities after the Second World War. It indicates some of the dimensions of internal Jewish migrations, its sources, motivations, and consequences. Given the historic dependence of the United States upon immigration for its social formation and the critical role of the immigration in the growth of the American Jewish community, study of internal migration provides a useful framework to assess certain postwar changes.
