See Fading of Small Communities as Italy's 30,000 Jews Show Urban Trend

By TULLIA ZEVI

(JTA Correspondent in Italy)
(Copyright, 1960, JTA, Inc.)

ROME—Italy's 30,000 Jews,
grouped into 23 communities,
remained stationary numbers
during the past year but tended
to move increasingly into cities
with large Jewish communities.
The trend foreshadowed the dis-
appearance of the smaller Jew-
ish communities.
Milan and Rdirre are the tw
major centers of Italian Jewisl
life. Milan, Italy's largest in
dustrial center, offers sub
stantial educational and job op-
portunities, and it exerts a great
attraction not only for Italian
Jews living in the smaller towns
but also on foreign Jews who
have established their own com-
munities within the Jewish com-
munity.

They include Jews from
Syria, Egypt, Iran, Turkey and
a large group of Ashkenazi
Jews. The Milan Je . sh corn-
munity totals 8,000 p ons.

The exodus from Egypt con-

but at a reduced pace. The
number of Egyptian Jews re-

from 442 cases in 1957 to 239

Jews have settled in Italy and
90 _percent have become Italian

A sidelight of JeWish life in
