This paper uses a unique data set on Jewish Americans to explore how their patterns of lifetime and recent migration have affected this population's redistribution across the United States. To the extent that the redistribution of Jewish Americans leads to a greater or lesser population concentration in particular locations, it may enhance or weaken the extent of their socioeconomic and demographic integration into the wider American population, the ability of individual members to maintain their Jewish identity, and, in turn, the ability of Jews to maintain their distinctiveness.
