I think the amenities are quite different though. Like in DC for example, it's very hard to find delis in the city, despite the large Jewish population. Same with finding good ones in San Francisco, despite the large Jewish population.

If you are young and single, Cleveland and Detroit are not nearly as good as Las Vegas and Phoenix, cities with similarly sized Jewish populations.

I have a few Jewish friends who opted to move to South Florida rather than New York City due to cost of living and the ability to live a similar young professional lifestyle in Miami with other Jews their age.

So it really depends what you are looking for.

Not looking to move, just to see these areas/neighborhoods with Jewish presence in these cities.

Thanks for all the help though

260K in Metro Atlanta sounds like way too high of an estimate. The latest Jewish Federation study in 2006 placed Atlanta at about half that, 120K. It's probably higher than that now but not 260K

It's probably true. With Atlanta receiving such a large influx of New Yorkers and New Jersey people. The numbers make sense.

I'd love for the numbers to be that high, but how could the jewish population double in 5 years??? Unless the survey was a gross undercount

I would be very surprised if there were a large number of Jewish transplants to ATL honestly.

Based on what I can tell the only places I see large numbers moving from my area would be NYC/LA/S FL, and i dont see many moving in the first place

For that number of tranplants it would mean like one in ten Jews from NYC Metro moved to the ATL in 5 years, HIGHLY unlikely

Tons of transplants. Emory is like the NYU of the South.

There has been an incredible influx on jews into intown Atlanta and the north side. Outside of Miami, Atlanta definitely has the largest Jewish population in the South (and the largest population in the "true south") I think the population is significantly higher than 120,000- maybe about 150K, but we're not to 260 yet.

Jewish areas of Metro Atlanta

Buckhead- a lot of old line Atlanta Jewish families (driving Miss Daisy)

Intown- young jewish singles, probably not that devout

Sandy Springs/Dunwoody- probably the greatest concentration of Jews in Atlanta. Most are very wealthy and community oriented

North dekalb/Toco Hils- a lot of orthodox jews here

Alpharetta/North Fulton- lots of transplanted Jewish families from the NE and Midwest

East Cobb- similar to North Fulton

(most are on the Northside. Jews are lightly scattered in other areas of Metro Atlanta. The only area on the south side with a sizable Jewish community would probably be Peachtree City

Atlanta also had a Jewish mayor way back when, so the large presence should not come as a great surprise. Midtown/Ansley Park also have pretty sizeable Jewish populations from what I remember.

His name was Sam Massell, he was mayor in the 1970s and is now head of the Buckhead Coalition, a community improvement organization. Interestingly, Sam Massell, Atlanta's first Jewish mayor, came right before Maynard Jackson, Atlanta's first black mayor.

There have been and still are a lot of prominent Jewish people who have guided Atlanta through the years. Think Sam Massell, Bernie Marcus, Arthur Blank, Morris Rich (who founded Rich's, a southern department store bought out by Macys) and let's not forget Leo Frank
