About this community

Stamford is a beautiful city with peaceful residential areas that display a rural Connecticut charm. The city is highlighted by an established Jewish community with a rapidly expanding group of young families. It boasts 3 kosher restaurants, 2 thriving Orthodox synagogues, along with a Chabad and an active JCC. The community has a strong Jewish day school (K-12) with close to 400 students, and two Jewish nursery schools from which to choose.

It also offers an energetic downtown area with fantastic shopping, communal activities and theaters. There are many job opportunities available in Stamford and the surrounding area – especially in the finance area – with several large companies (Pitney Bowes, Starwood, Indeed, among others) headquartered in the community. It is only a 45-minute commute to NYC and New Haven. It is also very close to Queens, New Rochelle, Riverdale, Monsey, and Teaneck.

There are houses, condos, and rentals all available within a short walk of both synagogues, and property taxes are about half of what you would pay for a similar home in Westchester, Long Island, and Northern New Jersey.

Many people feel that the Stamford community tends to be less judgmental about religious differences and hashkafa issues, and is very accepting of those who may not exactly fit the mold of the typical Orthodox family.

Come visit … and see why so many Orthodox families have been attracted to this exceptional community!
