A Life of Ease? I Don’t Think So.

In his review of the history of Jewish immigration and settlement in Swampscott and Newton, Joshua Resnek writes, “Kids growing up in these two places are privileged. Many move back to Swampscott and Newton [after college] and live their lives of ease as their parents lived such lives before them.”

The people I know in Swampscott work hard, often putting in long hours or working multiple jobs, in order to afford a house or condo in the community. The demands of a high-income job on one’s time and energy are not conducive to a life of ease.
