`No Serious Adverse Effect' on
Christian-Jewish Relationships
Indicated in Study of Two Cities

DALLAS
Desegregation
tensions which have created
conflicts among various sec-
tions of the population in the
South have "no serious adverse
effect" on relationships between
Christians and Jews, according
to extensive attitude studies of
the Jewish population in two
large southern cities.
Memphis and Miami reported
a "large flow" of social contact
between Christians and Jews.
The studies, which took more
than two years to complete,
presented a profile of the Jew-
ish population of Memphis and
Miami.
The Jewish population
Memphis is 8,000 out of a
population of 500,000;
in
Miami, the Jewish po
tion is
estimated at 90,0
out of a
total population
900,000.
Major findi of the studies

nection with e American Jew-

On the •
Semitism, there was some di-
vergence between the two com-
munities. In Memphis, '71 per
cent of the Jews said they had



heard no anti-Semitic incident
in their community but 15 per
cent r e p or t e d experiencing
anti-Semitic incidents. In Mi-
ami, while only 20 per cent said
that they, or members of their
families, had personally experi-
enced some anti-Semitic act, 60
per cent of the respondents
said that they had heard of
anti-Semitic incidents in Dade
County in recent years.
In both communities, affili-
ation with the synagogue
ranked high as "an essential"
