Beyond the Metropolis: Jews and Settler Cities
In a 1930 study sociologist Arthur Ruppin coined the term “Jewish metropolization” to describe the high rates of urbanization by Jews after 1800. He noted that Jews appeared to have a special preference for very large cities: Berlin, Warsaw, Vienna, Budapest, Odessa, London, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia and Buenos Aires, and after the lifting of Jewish settlement restrictions, Moscow and Petrograd/Leningrad.
