California had two neighborhoods listed among the top 10 Jewish neighborhoods in North America.
North/West Berkeley, in the northern part of the state, and Pico-Robertson in Los Angeles in the southern part made the list compiled by Jewish Living magazine.
The magazine, in a story written by Lisa Alcalay Klug, said size and amenities were not the only criteria.
“We have identified neighborhoods across the continent that are growing, rebuilding, reinventing themselves, unifying their disparate parts and exploring our traditions in unconventional ways,” Klug wrote.
Other communities on the list are Aventura, Fla.; Boulder, Colo.; Lower Merion, Pa.; McGill Ghetto, Montreal; North Dallas, Texas; SoHo/TriBeCa in New York City; University City in St. Louis, Mo.; and West Seattle, Wash.
