About This Community

LIVINGSTON is home to 2 Modern Orthodox synagogues, Suburban Torah and Etz Chaim, which together comprise a vibrant, diverse, warm and inclusive community that values and respects every individual, wherever they might be on their Jewish journey.

Livingston is fortunate to have a state-of-the-art mikvah, multiple kosher restaurants and amenities, and close proximity to New York City (20 miles), with train and bus transportation available. Nestled in Essex County, the community is centrally located in Northern New Jersey, also giving it access to a wide range of business and commercial centers throughout the area. Top-rated St. Barnabas Medical Center is located in Livingston. We also have the Friendship Circle and Lifetown, a leading provider of special needs programming for Jewish children.

In addition to synagogue incentives, local realtors will help first-time homeowners find affordable homes that start from $500K with property taxes lower than most nearby towns. In addition, the Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy, the community’s local Yeshiva day school, offers up to $25K over 5 years in tuition incentives to new families, as well as innovative middle-income affordability and financial aid packages.
