About this community

New families moving to the West Orange, NJ neighborhood are overwhelmed by the warm welcome as the community opens its homes and hearts to new members.

Located in Northern Central New Jersey, West Orange is just 20 miles from Manhattan, easily commutable by bus and nearby train options.  We are also a convenient commute to NJ-based pharmaceutical companies, hospitals and other industries.

Housing is affordable, ranging from 3-bedroom houses starting in the $300Ks and 4-bedroom houses in the $400Ks, to even larger homes within walking distance of synagogues.

Many of our community’s children attend Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy/Rae Kushner Yeshiva High School, the Jewish Educational Center (JEC), and other Central and Northern New Jersey High Schools, with Jewish nursery school and daycare options in town.

With a suburban feel, the town has many parks, such as the Turtle Back Zoo, ice skating, two nature reserves with picnic areas and hiking trails. The kosher restaurants in West Orange and neighboring towns include a kosher bagel shop, bakery, Chinese food, sushi, pizza restaurants as well as plenty of kosher items in our local supermarkets.

If you are looking for a welcoming, affordable, beautiful town to raise a family, West Orange is the perfect place!
