Demographic data is scarce about the voting patterns of diverse Jewish communities like the ones to which I belong.

Many have a well-meaning but mistaken impulse to flatten the differences within and between diverse Jewish populations.

One example is the way some use the term “Jews of color” as a catchall phrase that includes all kinds of populations — Black Jews, Middle Eastern Jews, sometimes even all Sephardic Jews and Hispanic Jews.

In other words, although they are increasingly labeled as Jews of color, Hispanic Jews in America are just as likely to identify as white.

Many liberal Jews were shocked that so many Jews could have supported the president, much less diverse Jews.
