JewishGen Digest Source, Cyndee Meystel: " I can tell you that most of what used to be the Jewish community in St. Paul no longer exists (except for Lubavitch/Chabad) and the Twin Cities Jewish communities are now predominately in Minneapolis/St. Louis Park areas." [15 Sep 2000]

JewishGen Digest Source, Howard M. Kaplan, Colorado: "The St. Paul Jewish community *does* exist. It probably is concentrated in Highland Park's area because the Temple of Aaron (Conservative) Congregation on Mississippi Blvd., probably is the largest in the city. If she's referring to the 'community' of the old West Side or West Side Hills or 14th St. 'market' area, the answer is *that* "community" dispersed after WWII, beginning about 1950-60." [15 Sep 2000]
