Jews on the Move: Implications for National and Local Communities in the United States

By Sidney Goldstein

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, 1989

 The high mobility levels of the Jewish population and their increasing dispersion throughout the United States present new challenges to the national Jewish community and to individual Jews. In fact, internal migration and generational change probably constitute the two most important ongoing processes that help explain many of the other demographic, social, and economic changes that affect the ties of the individual Jew to the larger Jewish community. The article analyzes data from the 1987 survey of Rhode Island Jewry.
