Deborah Dash Moore, citing Oscar Handlin, suggests a similarity between immigration from country to country and internal migration (moves within a country). Immigration to America by large numbers of Jews was primarily the result of the poor and oppressed conditions that they were forced to endure in Europe. Freedom was arguably their principle objective, and the expansion of freedom seemed to be at the very heart of the internal migration by Jews to Sunbelt cities after World War II. Thus, this analysis will briefly explore the similarities between the Jewish immigration to America and their migration to cities throughout the United States.
