Jewish New York City
New York City is the largest Jewish community outside Israel. In 1654, the Jewish community that became Shearith Israel made New Amsterdam (New York) an open city for all who are willing to work and be governed. The Hasidic community in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn is one of New York’s iconic Jewish communities.

New York is the city with the world’s largest Jewish population. The first Jewish community to arrive in New Amsterdam in 1654 is still here. It’s the Sephardic community Shearith Israel. Sephardi are descendants of Spanish and Portuguese Jews who were expelled from Iberia in 1492.
The community’s struggle for acceptance is what made New York a city open to all who are willing to work and be governed. Probably more than anything else, this has been New York’s greatest blessing. New York is the city of work. We are the capital of the world because everyone is welcome here.
New York City’s notable Jewish institutions include the 92nd Street Y, JCC Manhattan, Center for Jewish History, Jewish Museum, Museum of Jewish Heritage, Museum at Eldridge Street.
The New York Jewish Film Festival at Film at Lincoln Center with the Jewish Museum, is New York City’s first film festival of the year. There’s also the New York Sephardic Jewish Film Festival and the Reelabilities Film Festival.
