This chapter describes what lay ahead for Jewish immigrant peddlers after peddling. In particular, it illustrates stories of the success of Jewish peddlers. Through peddling, some Jews were able to buy land in their adopted countries. In addition to running for office or serving on commissions, many peddlers used their economic resources to improve their communities. This chapter also shows that Jewish men were often provided with a path toward civic integration through peddling.
