Yes, they’re that desperate

Jewish? Moving to Dothan, Ala., can net you $50,000 | ajc.com

I wouldn’t exactly call Dothan a “small town” — the city population is about 65,000 — but in common with much of the South outside the major cities, its Jewish population has declined over the years. (There used to be a lot of Jews all over the South, especially in Mississippi, but they’re now pretty much confined to Atlanta, Birmingham, etc.) So, the remnant population is offering bonuses to Jews to move to Dothan and stay there.

It’s actually a pretty nice place, close to the beach (I would go to the beach a lot more if it didn’t take so long) and has an impeccably Biblical name.

  1. A friend of mine had a show at their little museum a while back, and I drove up with her to have lunch with the arty ladies. The museum was lovely, and they did a great job hanging her stuff. Also, lunch was delicious.
