We are thinking of relocating from Cleveland, OH to Charlotte by early next year. I am interested in looking a communities that have a Jewish population. I know there are not many jews in the south but we also don't want to be the only jews in a neighborhood. I have seen that Weddington/Waxhaw seem to have jews. What about areas in SC like Fort Mill? Any help would be appreciated.

As realtors, we cannot give opinions on demographics on areas. I would consider areas close to the JCC. I live in Union County just over the south Charlotte border, and some of my friends from the JCC are down this ways as well.

My family is Jewish and we are moving to Charlotte in AUgust . I researched the demographics and there are more Jews in Charlotte than any other city in NC. Also there are some beautiful temples. There is this place called Shalom Park and it is a small area with three temples for each denomination with a JCC, very nice. You wont be the only jew.

When I was a Realtor, we were taught that it is unethical and even racist to seek out a neighborhood based on race!

They were asking about religion, not race. But it's also unethical as a realtor to mention that, as well.

Default Please tell me they didn't use those words.

It would be unethical and racist except for the fact that Jewish isn't a "race." I'm sure your Realtor training did not literally equate "Jewish" and "race." If it did, I hope someone would have spoken up. Race is not the only basis for an ethnic group.

Your assumption is innocent enough because there was nothing negative behind it or your post. Still, this horrible inaccuracy lingers even now in the 21st century.

I don't have the perspective of being Jewish. However, this ethnic group is based on a lot of things such as religion, language and culture. The one thing it is not based on is any idea of "race."
