About This Community

OAK PARK is a fast growing, close-knit community that has a low cost of living, especially relative to other large metropolitan areas. There are several synagogues, with Young Israel of Oak Park being the largest Modern Orthodox synagogue in the area.

Local education is very affordable, and includes preschools, elementary schools, and middle/high schools, that span a wide range on the Torah spectrum. Higher education is available at Wayne State University and University of Michigan, as well as several other schools.

Oak Park is near several highly-ranked hospitals, Jewish Senior Life facilities/programs/services, and kosher assisted living facilities, some located directly next to Young Israel of Oak Park.

Employment opportunities abound in the Detroit metropolitan area in Medicine, Automotive/ Engineering Industry, and Information Technology (home of Automation Alley).

Affordable housing is easily found with houses ranging $150-400K, as well as rental apartments and townhouses. Income and property taxes are significantly less than those in other major metropolitan areas.

Oak Park/East Southfield have several kosher restaurants/shopping, as well as a beautiful mikvah. A large JCC located in nearby West Bloomfield serves the Detroit Metropolitan area.

Stress–free commutes are usually 20 minutes or less, with easy accessibility to highways and low congestion travel. NYC is about 10 hours by car and 1.5 hours by plane.
