For All Who Doubt Me
When I tell them that there is, and has historically been, a solid Jewish community in the South:
We had four friends over for dinner tonight vising from Charlotte, and they are living proof of the above. The website is fascinating, and while I know that there are probably more longstanding communities in the older regions of the South, I remember my mother telling me that even in podunk coastal Texas in the 1950s, she got to visit a sukkah built by a retail colleague of her father's. Just an interesting study in how diversity really does equal American, no matter how cynical people get.
