About This Community

Rolling hills through the countryside, bustling downtown area, picturesque Allentown is home to a close-knit Modern Orthodox Jewish community. Nestled in the West End neighborhood, our low cost of living boasts spacious 3–4-bedroom houses for less than $300K within our large eruv, low property and income tax, and tax-free groceries, clothing, drugstore and many household items.

Allentown economy is booming, and companies are creating jobs faster than they can fill them. The Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation has identified growth industries as healthcare, transportation, life-science research, high value business services and manufacturing.

Our children thrive at the Jewish Day School, our top-notch Pre-K–8th grade school. Our beautiful mikvah and local Vaad are pillars of the community. Kosher meat, dairy and fresh baked goods are among the many kosher foods available at multiple local grocery stores. Dine out at Muhlenberg College, offering meat and dairy fare, under the supervision of the Star-K.

Only 60 minutes north of Philadelphia, and 90 minutes west of New York. Attractions around the area include Dorney Park, the Crayola Experience, the Da Vinci Science Center, Lehigh Valley Zoo, Triple-A Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs and AHL affiliate Lehigh Valley Phantoms.

Warm hospitality, Small-town values, Metropolitan convenience
