Judaism and Urbanism : Jewish Communities React to Suburbanization

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

"I thought Jews were an urban people." "I thought Jews all lived in the suburbs." Both of these generalizations are true in some cities but not others. In this presentation, I'd like to take you on a tour through American metro areas, showing how Jews have maintained a strong urban presence in some cities and suburbanized in others.

Michael Lewyn

Michael Lewyn is an Associate Professor at Touro Law Center, where he teaches courses in property and environmental law. Most of Lewyn's scholarship focuses on urban and suburban development, and in particular the question of "sprawl": why some cities and towns are walkable and full of vitality, while others have been overshadowed by suburban areas where car ownership is a necessity.
