Blacks and Jews

By Edward Shapiro

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, April 29, 1994

Jews have always had a better socioeconomic status in the United States, which allowed them opportunities blacks could not access. This relationship is still valuable, but its history needs improved accuracy.
