Abstract:

Despite pockets of discrimination, almost every occupation and position in American society is open to American Jews, compared to the situation in the 1930s when widespread and virulent antisemitism caused Jews to hide their identity. Although many Jews fear this change because of increasing assimilation, evidence shows that it also offers opportunities for a cultural and religious revival. Black antisemitism is presented as the exception to this optimistic view.
