About This Community

Houston is one of the top destinations for Orthodox families looking to relocate. They are attracted to the superb Torah infrastructure, strong job market and relatively low cost of living. Our demographics are diverse, from large numbers of young families to retirees and empty nesters.

Houston offers an array of chinuch options for children: 3 Day Schools, 1 girls high school, 1 Yeshiva boys high school, and 1 coed high school. There are 3 mikvaot, and 4 eruvin. With 8 restaurants, 6 supermarkets offering Kosher sections, 2 bakeries, and 5+ caterers, there’s plenty to eat!.

Houston has 9 diverse shuls, including Bellaire Jewish Center, Beth Rambam, Heimish, Chabad, The Meyerland Minyan Synagogue; Torah VaChessed, Young Israel and United Orthodox Synagogue (UOS), The Kollel of Houston Torah Center, outreach organizations (Torch, J-Hype, and Lubavitch), and NCSY and Bnei Akiva for youth.

Affordable housing is available with sizes, locations, and prices to fit everyone’s preferences and budget. There are even 3-bedroom homes starting at $180K! New construction can also be found.

The Orthodox community is well-networked within a variety of fields to help with job placement and career success. Houston is home to many businesses including about two dozen Fortune 500 companies.

Houston's economy has an industrial base in energy, aeronautics, and technology and is the Energy Capital of the world. Houston’s Texas Medical Center employs more than 100,000 health care professionals.
