The Fabulous Fillmore and San Francisco’s East European Jews
A center of Orthodoxy, Zionism, socialism, and the Yiddish theater, the lively neighborhood was the hub of local Yiddish-speaking culture for decades. It was also an entertainment mecca for the whole city, and Jews were highly visible as performers, and operators of restaurants, vaudeville houses, movie theaters, and jazz clubs.
