New York: A City's Many Jewish Stories

By Jeffrey S. Gurock

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, October 2010

Noting that the Jewish population of New York city has shifted considerably toward the suburbs during the past half-century, the author maintains that there remains in New York a large and multifaceted group of Jews who still live within the five boroughs, in New York City proper. This multiplicity reflects different religious, socioeconomic and demographic sub-groups of Jewry, the author explains, arguing that this population warrants further study.
