Despite growing up in a fundamentalist Christian family in the Deep South, an area sometimes known for its anti-Semitism- Elvis developed a deep affinity to Jews.

Elvis befriended many Jews in Memphis- including merchants and members of his inner circle, the Memphis Mafia- and those he met in the music and movie industries.
