Long Branch, NJ United States – OU Communities

About this community

Long Branch, a seaside community 50 miles from New York City, is large enough to have everything, but small enough that every family counts. The community is perfect for today’s Modern Orthodox family looking for an “out of town” feel that has big city amenities.

Congregation Brothers of Israel, is a dynamic, warm, friendly Modern Orthodox Ashkenazic synagogue with programming and services for all ages. Its day school, Yeshiva at the Jersey Shore, attracts young families seeking superior academic and religious education for their children. Our member families develop very close relationships with other member families; shul friends become extended family and create very special bonds. Retirees are attracted to Long Branch’s carefree beachfront condo and apartment living and to Brothers of Israel’s satellite Ocean Avenue Minyan.  The surrounding area is home to a diverse religious Jewish population that includes “Yeshivish”, Modern Orthodox, Syrian-Sephardic, and Chabad.

We boast great amenities including affordable housing in tree-lined neighborhoods, a wide variety of kosher markets, great selection of kosher restaurants, eruv, mikvaot and choice of Jewish Day Schools/Yeshivot.

Job opportunities include several state-of-the-art medical centers, high-tech industries, and legal and accounting firms. New York City is 60-90 minutes away accessible by car, bus, ferry or direct train service. Housing prices range from mid $300,000 and up.  House and apartment rentals are available. Local beaches, parks, and recreational opportunities are available to everyone.

Enjoy a Shabbos in Long Branch and you will want to live here!
