In the United States of America, Jews enjoyed equal rights
and religious freedom from the beginning. Ever greater numbers of
Jews migrated to the USA in the 19th and 20th century, and
today American Jewry constitutes the largest Jewish community in
the world, with Jews well integrated into political, commercial
and cultural life.
