Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an exploration into the confluence of place, consumption, leisure, and belonging through the lens of new Jewish spaces - primarily cafés, restaurants, and hotels - at the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries in Berlin. While all these sites represent more traditional Jewish spaces, a similar intersection of space, consumption, and belonging occurs also in less-traditional spaces in the modern era. During the nineteenth century the Jewish community of Berlin underwent significant demographic changes, namely massive urbanization. The Jewish population of Berlin increased dramatically as part of a more general move to urban centers across Germany. Not only sites of leisure or the consumption of a beverage or meal, these sites functioned as meeting grounds for Jewish political and associational groups, for the celebration of Jewish holidays, and even for the creation of Jewish families.
