Jewish Trenton Project-First Look from Ed Alpern on Vimeo.

This is a first look at a documentary that Ed Alpern is working on about the Jews of Trenton, New Jersey. Trenton had about 7,000 Jews living in the Capital City in the 1930’s. A majority of them lived in an area that no longer exists. An area that the locals themselves called “Jewtown”. What was the area like? Where did it go? What killed “Jewtown”?
