Pale (with a capital P) as in "..Russian Jews from the Pale.."

Posted by Janes_kid on August 09, 2003

I have found references to "Pale" with a capital P referring to Ireland. But "..Russian Jews from the Pale.." struck me as being curious (Source was a book review in a magazine in a waiting room. Perhaps boredom had me seeing things.) Were/are there Russian Jews in Ireland.
