Sacramento (Greater), CA United States – OU Communities

About this community

California living in a leafy suburb of the cosmopolitan Capital City! The Farm-to-Fork center is significantly more affordable than the Bay Area and most of Southern California. Experience the beautiful weather — four mild seasons with non-humid summers make outside activities pleasant. In all seasons, enjoy the warmth of the lush valley or quickly reach scenic destinations in the Sierra Nevada, Yosemite, Wine Country, and the spectacular coast.

Travel & Leisure lists Sacramento as one of America’s coolest cities and, indeed, ranked it 5th when considering salaries, jobs, projected growth, and the reasonable cost of living. With 250 different crops, kashrut supervision and food production offer great potential. Major employers include the State of California, UC Davis, many medical organizations, and hi-tech companies, with extensive opportunities for remote/hybrid employment associated with the relatively close Silicon Valley.

Experience unique adventures such as rafting on the American River, panning for gold and, of course, touring the Jelly Belly Factory.

The Jewish community is diverse and unified with a small-town feel. Synagogues include KITC (OU), numerous Chabad centers, and other denominations. A large eruv, active Federation, preschools, community day school, kosher senior residence, and mikvah round out the amenities.

Within the eruv is a variety of housing from apartments to mini-farms. Condos, perfect for singles, couples and retirees are around 200K, starter homes around 350K, and resort-style homes with beautiful pools start at 500k.

If you have been “California Dreamin’,” make your dreams come true in Sacramento. Come enjoy the California lifestyle, affordably!
