About This Community

Come live your best life in Harrisburg with our gentler pace of life. We’re all from varying hashkafas, so each person makes a unique contribution. We’re now rated by US News & World Report as the #1 community in Pennsylvania, and the best place nationally for retirees.
For outdoors enthusiasts, there’s hiking (Appalachian Trail), fishing, boating, skiing and hunting. Hershey Park is basically next door. Between theater, symphony, minor league sports, museums, and historical sites, we’re always entertained. Plus, you’ll drive easily to NYC (3.3 hrs.), Philadelphia (2 hrs.), and Baltimore (1.15 hr.).
Our Orthodox lifestyle is fulfilled. There is as much learning as we have time for. The supermarket's kosher section has with fresh, packaged meats and a supervised bakery. Restaurant orders arrive weekly from Baltimore.
The Silver Academy (preschool-8) shines in individualized learning. Graduates, lauded for exemplary middot, excel at Jewish and secular secondary schools. The school and JCC are on our neighborhood’s new Kosher campus.
Appealing, spacious homes are only $200K to $450K, featuring extra bedrooms, sizeable yards, garages, and pleasant serenity. Low property taxes, day school subsidy, 3% income tax, and tax-free retirement accounts are other Pennsylvania bonuses.
Employers include several nationally recognized healthcare systems, state and federal government, and military installations. There are law and medical schools and two dozen+ colleges and universities within commuting distance. We’re a logistics hub, and have banking, insurance, engineering, accounting, law, and IT positions. Most commutes are only 10-20 minutes. All this within a stable economy!
All roads lead to Harrisburg. We made our home in The Capital City!


Pennsylvania's unique private school scholarship program (EITC) makes Day School highly affordable at all income levels.

JCC daycare offers income-based subsidies, bolstered by PA subsidies, also based on need.

Kesher Israel dues can be generously discounted if needed.
