This chapter discusses Julienne Marder's move from Brooklyn to Brevard in 1939. Julienne was moving from a community where she was “an almost majority” to a town where she was “a small minority.” American-born and college-educated, the twenty-year-old felt comfortable in the small mountain town, but her mother Ida, born in Lithuania, found the move “traumatic.” Julienne's father Frank, a lawyer, had accepted a post at the new Ecusta Paper plant. After a visit by Rabbi Moses Jacobson of Temple Beth Ha-Tephila, they settled in Asheville, where they found an established Jewish community. A realtor suggested Biltmore Forest was convenient to the Brevard factory, but that upscale development excluded Jews.

Keywords:   Julienne Marder, Brooklyn, Brevard, almost majority, small minority, Rabbi Moses Jacobson
