The Myth of Community in the Sunbelt

By Herb Tobin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), September 1984

The sunbelt communities provide a unique and exciting situation in American Jewish life. They are the only communities that are experiencing any type of dynamic growth. That they do so in a suburban environment and that they are faced with a disproportionate number of retirees add to the complexity of the situation. One must believe that the resources, both human and financial, are available to deal with this situation. Indeed, all of American Jewry must take it as an imperative that sunbelt communities grow into strong, multi-faceted, mature communities. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.61 no.1, Fall 1984.
