NEW YORK — The
preservation of Jewish
neighborhoods should be a
major emphasis of Jewish
communal life because they
are closely linked to the con-
tinuity of the Jewish people,
according to a study of four
such neighborhoods just
published by the American
Jewish Committee.
Titled "Jewish Neighbor-
hoods in Transition," the
study was prepared by Dr.
Janice Goldstein, an urban
consultant, and is one of a
series of occasional "Perti-
nent Papers" issued by
AJC's Domestic Affairs De-
partment, directed by
Seymour Samet.
The study urges Ameri-
can Jewish leaders to "look
at their neighborhoods not
just as places where Jews
happen to live, but as physi-
cal habitats, whole geo-

graphic areas hospitable to
the creation and mainte-
nance of Jewish communal
life in the coming decades."
The four communities
discussed are South
Miami Beach, Beverly-
Fairfax in Los Angeles,
Wynnefield in Philadel-
phia, and Cleveland
Heights, a suburb on the
east side of Cleveland.
The report points out that
"Jews have been tradi-
tionally mobile. As their
economic and social position
has improved, they have
moved away from first And
second generation
neighborhoods, initially to
homes in more affluent city
areas, and ultimately from
the central cities to the sub-
urbs."
The study goes on to indi-
cate, however, that the
entire housing situation in

the United States has been
changing because of new
factors in the economy, and
that these factors are likely
to affect Jewish mobility in
the coming decades.
"High interest rates and
spiralling rents have con-
stricted the existing hous-
ing market," the report
states,• "and inflation and
the energy crisis have
slowed construction and
forced up the price of new
homes. As' transportation
costs have risen, more and
more working couples look
for housing closer to their
jobs, real estate values in
the city and close-in sub-
urbs escalate sharply, limit-
ing mobility and choices for
many middle-income
Americans.
"In cities and suburbs,
rental units are being
converted to con-
dominiums and coopera-
tives, and for the elderly
and others of limited in-
comes, desirable housing
and neighborhoods are
becoming ever more dif-
ficult to find."
The report offers some
"tentative predictions,"
which it recommends for
consideration by Jewish
leaders who are concerned
about the stabilization or
revitalization of Jewish
neighborhoods:
• Affluent Jews, unim-
peded by financial consid-
erations or closeness to jobs,
will continue to move to
new, more desirable hous-
ing in suburban and exur-
ban areas and to luxury
housing in the central
cities.
• Young and older single
Jewish persons and single
parent families of moderate
means will find it hard to
pay the exorbitant rents or
purchase price of homes in

Zionist Form
Yerida Council

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A
Council for the Prevention
of Yerida was established
last week following the pub-
lication of a report prepared
by the Jewish Agency that
between 300,000 and
500,000 Israelis are now liv-
ing in the United States.
The Council was formed
by the Zionist Council in Is=
rael and the founding ses-
sion was attended by Ab-
sorption Minister David
Levy, Jewish Agency Direc-
tor General Shmuel Lahis,
Knesset members and other
public figures.
The Jewish Agency
Executive will discuss the
Lahis report. Its conclusions
will be presented to the gov-
ernment and Agency coor-
dinating body in mid-
February.
Rafael Kotlowitz, head of
the Agency's immigration
and absorption department,
questioned the accuracy of
Lahis' figures. He said that
according to the Central
Bureau of Statistics there
were some 300,000 yordim
throughout the world.
Therefore, he said he failed
to understand where Lahis
got the figure of up to
500,000 yordim in the U.S.
alone.

neighborhoods they wish to
live in. They will need help
with down payments if they
wish to buy and to keep
monthly payments man-
ageable.
• Two-income couples
will find it easier to rent or
buy homes but will have
fewer choices in the cities.
They are potential pur-
chasers and renters of hous-
ing
in
gentrifying
neighborhoods.
• "The plight of elderly,
low and moderate income
Jews will be especially
troublesome. Perhaps as
many as a half-million will
need some financial and
housing counselling assis-
tance in finding and main-
taining suitable retirement
housing.
• It will be hard for
Jewish families with
school-age children (the

baby boom generation) to
find neighborhoods with af-
fordable housing and good
public schools so common
three decades ago. Some
may buy older homes in
close-in suburbs or the cen-
ter city and either send
their children to Jewish day
schools or work to improve
the neighborhood public
schools — or both.
