This chapter discusses the possible future prospects of the remaining American Jewish communities that are left in the United States. Although some still have a chance to continue, some communities, like the one in Portsmouth, are at risk. It also looks at the possible causes of the slow collapse and decline of the Jewish communities, such as mobility and migration due to poor economic status.
