At the heart of this community are about 100 young families, creating a dynamic and inclusive atmosphere within the "one shul" out of town feeling. Here, everyone feels at home, welcomed by a warmth that extends beyond the shul’s walls.
Education is a priority here, with two outstanding Modern Orthodox day schools, JEC/RTMA/Bruriah & JKHA/RKYHS, both conveniently located within an 18-minute drive from Springfield.
Springfield offers a selection of Kosher options including Bagels Supreme, Tokyo Hibachi, Rye Deli, and Krispy Kreme. Moreover, supermarkets stocked with fresh kosher products, meats, fish, and cheese cater to the needs of the community.
