South Florida, particularly Palm Beach and Broward Counties, is slightly more Jewish than NY/NJ/CT percentage-wise. But the fact that NY/NJ/CT maintains a similar percentage at nearly four times the size is impressive.

Atlanta does not have 260,000 Jews. Its Jewish community grew tremendously in the last 15 years but it's more like 120,000.

No you don't.

And I don't see why I need to live somewhere to know well known, easily verifiable, facts. It takes 30 seconds of google search to get up to date stats on Jewish communities.

Cincinnati has a sizable Jewish population. The Amberly Village section is overwhelmingly Jewish. And the Hebrew Union College is in Clifton just blocks from UC. According to Wiki:

The Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (also known as HUC, HUC-JIR, and The College-Institute) is the oldest extant Jewish seminary in the Americas[1] and the main seminary for training rabbis, cantors, educators and communal workers in Reform Judaism.
HUC-JIR has campuses in Cincinnati, New York, Los Angeles and Jerusalem.

And then there's Izzy's ... mmmmm
