Jersey City, NJ

About This Community

Conveniently located just across the Hudson River from New York City, which is also accessible via the PATH train and NJTransit bus to several Manhattan locations, Jersey City puts all the Orthodox infrastructure of the greater NYC area at your fingertips.

Top-notch school systems (JEC, Kushner, Frisch, Yeshiva Gedola of Passaic, etc.) are located in the immediately surrounding communities of Bayonne, Elizabeth, Englewood, Manhattan, Newark, Passaic-Clifton, Paramus and Teaneck, as are kollelim. A quality Jewish preschool is available for the kids right next door in Hoboken. Mikvaot, bookstores, modest clothing stores as well as some of the world’s best kosher supermarkets and restaurants are within a half-hour drive.

Rents and housing prices currently make Jersey City much more affordable and attractive than Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, or Long Island. Comfortable family accommodations can be leased here at around $2,000 a month. A starter two- to three-bedroom apartment in the fashionable Heights will cost around $600,000. Lush parks with well-equipped playgrounds are integrated into every neighborhood of up-and-coming Jersey City.

Daily minyanim can be found in Jersey City Heights (Shachris), Downtown Jersey City (Mincha/Maariv), Greenville (Shachris/Mincha/Maariv) as well as in Union City (Shachris/Mincha/Maariv).

Whether you want to learn and grow or teach and learn and grow, you have a place among the chevra in Jersey City. Enjoy the satisfaction of having an active role in shaping a warm and supportive Jewish community for yourselves and your children, amidst all the amenities New York City Jewish life has to offer.
