Besides the Hasidim in NYC?

If you check homes within walking distance of Orthodox synagogues, you'll find Jewish neighborhoods. I know of one in Houston, though it's not particularly "ethnic." It looks like other homes nearby, except it's dead as a doornail on Halloween.

Not all of Roger Park is Jewish anymore. Anthing from the lakefron to Damen is non-Jewish

West Rogers Park is, though (between Damen and Western) gets more Jewish the further west you go

Houston, Bellaire area. Many of the grocery stores advertise the Kosher sections on the outside of the building.

Thanks, R16, I was wondering on Sunday whether the Jewish part was just Rogers Park or something, e.g., West, Rogers Park.

Highland Park, NJ. Awesome pizza at Jerusalem Pizza. I dated a few guys from there who where reform not orthodox. My ex's family passed me off as Jewish to his visiting aunt. I'm a short redheaded Irish guy, but there are redheaded Jews in Highland Park too.

Since Judaism isn't an ethnicity, then no, OP.

The Preston and (especially) Hillcrest Road corridors of North Dallas from University Park north to LBJ Freeway are heavily Jewish. There are 6 or 7 synagogues in this area including old money Temple Emanu-El. Neighborhoods are primarily full of spacious, comfortable homes on large lots, many of which are being torn down for gigantic showplaces as old people die off and are buried or entombed at nearby Hillcrest Memorial Park, which abuts Temple Emanu-El on one side and fabulous NorthPark Center on the other, which includes the highest-grossing Neiman Marcus in the U.S., among other platinum retailers.

R16 I DO appreciate the update on Rogers Park. It was a lifetime ago that I lived there, but we were in a tenement type building only 2 blocks from the lake. Did the eastern part become gentrified due to the popularity of being near Lake Michigan? I remember thinking back then that eventually those old brick apartment buildings would probably be torn down for more upscale housing. I am not even Jewish, but I used to walk to a Kosher butcher shop because I fancied the idea of my meats being butchered less cruelly! Wow what a sucker I was.

R27 Would you have preferred "culturally Jewish"?

by Anonymousreply 3605/07/2013

R35, I'm not R16 but I think East Rogers Park has a large East Indian population now. I don't live in Chicago anymore but I believe the area around Howard Street (Juneway Terrace) is still run down. Back in the late 70's, I lived in a high rise at Sheridan and Granville. Ten years before that, I was a kid and my family lived in Edgewater fora few years and I had a lot of friends from Rogers Park.

R37, R35, R36, R16 I read a wonderful book that took place in West Rogers Park, "Crossing California," by Adam Langer.

R38 "California" refers to a street name in WRP, not the state.

R27, my Jewish friends disagree. They think of themselves as an ethnicity (one actually said "race") and a religion.

I don't know if it's still there but on the main shopping street that runs through the Five Towns, Centeral Avenue, they have (had) THE best kosher bakery ever. I think it was named Zomick's Bakery but I'm not sure.

Yes r24 my brother's family lives around there and Shaker Hts, Beechwood and Cleveland Hts all have a healthy Jewish population. I think the name of the area he lives in his called Pepper Pike and you can't swing a stick without hitting a Temple or Synagogue.

The Weequahic section of Newark was all Jewish. Race riots caused "White Flight" to suburban Essex County.

East Rogers Park has quite a bit of everything but it's predominately black, Latino, and white...the Devon Ave strip (from Clark to ~Western) is heavily East Indian and Pakistani).

R37, Sheridan and Granville IS Edgewater...devon is the dividing line between Edgewater and Rogers Park.

The Eastern Part of RP did become somewhat gentrified but the powers that be in 'hood put a stop to it because it was ruining the diversity of the place.

Although, Howard Street has now gentrified a little bit, there's a mini-mall now right on Howard Street by the Howard Street -el stop (which also underwent a major renovation.

I liked in Rogers Park when it was a Jewish neighborhood. I'm ancient. I just assumed there were still Jewish neighborhoods in New York.

I loved A Serious Man. So, is St Louis Park still a Jewish neighborhood?

I'm a big fan of The Coen Brothers.

by Anonymousreply 6405/11/2013

Someone upthread said it is. The fact is, some Jewish neighborhoods aren't as predominantly Jewish as they once were. Jews only make up 2% of USA population whereas a generation ago, it was 4% or more.

Squirrel Hill in Pittsburgh is still the first place Jewish people think about living, I imagine, but Jews don't make up the same percentage of Squirrel Hill's population as they did in the sixties and seventies. I would imagine this is true elsewhere.

Yes, R64. Although it isn't majority Jewish. Very nice with proximity to the best neighborhoods in Minneapolis. Me and my boyfriend go there when we want delicatessen or stores that sell cel ray and a good rye. There are temples and Jews in other areas, but it is known as "St. Jewish Park".
