Overland Park is a vibrant, fast-growing Jewish community located in a beautiful (and affordable!) suburb of Kansas City. Over the past five years, an influx of young families has energized the Orthodox community, centered around Congregation BIAV, the only OU shul in the area, and revitalized the local, pioneering Jewish day school, Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy.
When your child attends BIAV's overflowing youth groups, you participate in our spirited tefillot, or your family experience the sheer midwestern niceness of everyone around town, you’ll fall in love with Overland Park, the way so many of our members already have!
Overland Park boasts an award-winning NCSY chapter, and the local Vaad Hakashrut is constantly increasing the amount of kosher food available. Within walking distance from the shul you will find any level of housing you desire, from renting a townhouse ($1600/mo), to buying an affordable starter home ($250-300K), and all the way up to $800k for the top-end homes in our nicest area, with below-average property taxes.
The growing Kansas City metro area is home to several well-known companies such as AMC, Honeywell, Hallmark, Garmin, and H&R Block, as well as many job opportunities in a diverse set of industries. No matter what you are looking for in a new community, talk to us at Overland Park to find out how we might be the right fit for you and your family!
