So you've seen "Big Fish," "Forrest Gump" and "Driving Miss Daisy," and now you think you know what the South is all about -- old mansions, moss-draped oaks, steamy swamps. Think again. The South is a vibrant tapestry of culture, and its Jewish communities are important threads. Atlanta, Miami and Nashville are thriving tourism destinations, but Charleston, S.C., featuring luxuriant gardens, long porches and rocking chairs filled with laughing guests sipping sweet tea, is also flush with Jewish history that dates back to the 17th century.
