I had friends from non jewish backgrounds renting as students in very jewish parts of London. When many moved a main reason they cited for leaving those areas was they hated the experience of being made to feel invisible by their orthodox neighbours who ignored them on the street, refused to make eye contact, never said thank you when doors were held open, and in short did everything 'right' regarding maintaining their religious ideals of separateness- but left everyone else they came into contact with feeling deeply insulted. Shame. These things do matter. And they leave a long- lasting impression on others.
