About This Community

If you’re looking for the perfect combination of large-community amenities and small-town warmth, look no further than Hillside, New Jersey. We are a modern Orthodox community in central New Jersey with a strong culture and an array of schools and services, all within an affordable suburban area.

The Hillside community houses multiple synagogues, Bruriah High School for Girls, a Shabbos park, and a beautiful park with walking trails. Hillside is only several minutes away from Elizabeth, where the Jewish Educational Center (JEC) elementary and boys’ middle and high schools are located. Elizabeth is also home to several kosher establishments, including a pizza restaurant, meat cafe, kosher Dunkin Donuts, and kosher grocery store. In addition, the local YM-YWHA of Union County offers multiple services, including an affordable and kosher daycare program, summer camp, children’s sports leagues, exercise classes, and senior programs. The Y also offers pools with men’s and women’s swim hours. Within a larger 30-minute radius, there are numerous additional restaurants available, including other school options such as the Kushner Hebrew Academy/SINAI Program.

With regards to location, Hillside offers multiple convenient routes to Manhattan, with both train and bus options available. Hillside is also located near several large cities in New Jersey, offering a range of professional opportunities in the area. With homes available at significantly more affordable prices than in other New Jersey communities, Hillside makes Jewish life accessible. But what makes Hillside most notable is the friendliness embedded in our culture, where authenticity and warmth are valued.


The Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ offers tuition grants for Jewish schools in the area. The Jewish Educational Center (JEC)’s Gra Scholarship offers one year of free tuition per family who purchases a home in the area.
