COLUMBUS, the 14th largest city in America and capital of Ohio, is a vibrant Orthodox Jewish community. In fact, it has one of the fastest growing employment markets in the overall Midwest with extremely affordable housing and vital infrastructure to raise a Jewish family and for Jewish individuals. Columbus rates in the top tier for growth, tech opportunity, startup activity, retail/designer trends, zoo, arts, corporate investments, young professionals, housing, banking & insurance, lifestyles, and values. Drive anywhere under 30 minutes!
Columbus’ dynamic job market can be attributed to corporations such as Nationwide Insurance, Ohio State University, Cardinal Health, Chase Bank, Wendy’s, Abbott and Battelle Laboratories, and retail giants: L-Brands, A&F, Lane Bryant and DSW. Medical Centers, including Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Ohio State University Hospitals, are expanding and hiring.
Housing is incredibly affordable. Buy a beautiful 3-bedroom/2- bathroom home of approximately 1,800 sq. ft. for under $275K or rent it for less than $1,700/month. What makes Columbus even more affordable is that we have state tuition vouchers which significantly reduce the cost of day school education. Columbus is home to 3 vibrant Orthodox synagogues, a community Kollel, a Modern Orthodox K-12 Day School, a mikvah, an eruv, a JCC, and preschools. Our community is home to Jewish learning and thinkers, including our community families, the Schottenstein’s, Wexner’s and Melton’s.
The Columbus Orthodox community is warm and friendly, diverse, and accepting and a great place to raise Jewish children. Reach out (columbuspathways.org) and see why Columbus is the place for you.
