Respinning an Old Yarn: Jews and the International Trade in Used Clothing

By Adam Mendelsohn

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Fall 2009

The author traces the history of Jews in the used garment industry in New York, London and other locations, and examines the position of this industry in their larger economic contexts. The secondhand clothing industry played a profoundly consequential role in modern Jewish economic history, the author argues.
