This chapter addresses the migration of Jewish peddlers. Immigrant peddlers played a significant role in the establishment of regional, national, and local Jewish economic infrastructures and the spread of wares. Millions of Jews have migrated over time to foreign lands, driven by urbanization and industrialization, racially inflected nationalism, and a growth in the Jewish population.
