It's kinda funny that the South has had such a reputation for anti-semitism. Jefferson Davis appointed a Jew to his cabinet during the Civil War.

Judah P. Benjamin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Anyway to the topic, I live in Boston and the Brookline and Newton suburbs are very Jewish. Additionally it seems that MA is the only state that pretty much all counties have relatively high Jewish concentrations.

that's mostly because there are no real rural counties in MA.

I forgot that the counties in MA are relatively big (compared to the state size), there are what, 6 counties? But the very north western counties seem pretty rural to me.

I worked at a coffee shop in Brookline that had kosher products, and sometimes at the branch in Newton... Lots of Jews, my neighbors in Brighton were Hassidics. LA has a lot too, less traditional though at least to the casual observer.

there are 14 counties in MA

in regards to the last part percentage wise (according to the federation) Baltimore is the most Orthodox metro area (based on there calculation of metro areas) (though I would bet NY tops them (just NYC I think would top Baltimore) especially if I throw in Rockland and Bergen Counties in to there metro and take out Sullfolk)
