There's probably another 10K Jews or so within that population.

That comes out to about 575K Jews across 7.55 million (40% of LA CSA), or 7.6% of the population. The point being, there's a contiguous area within the LA metro that's a good half a million larger than both the NJ portion of NYC and all of South Florida, and maintains a larger or very similar percentage of Jewry. Of the few CSAs with a greater total population than 7.55 million, the only one you could cherry pick to get a similar percentage is Boston — 7.3% across 3.03 million people (Suffolk, Middlesex, Norfolk).

Of course a New Jersey vs. L.A. comparison for Jewish life is kinda pointless. NJ is too integrated into NYC for a stand-alone comparison, nobody can "forget" that it's there.

A long but interesting read about the Jewish community in San Francisco from 1950. At the time it was said to have a very assimilated Jewish community with virtually no proletariat. German Jews were among the city's "founding families."
