San Antonio, TX United States – OU Communities

About this community

Deep in the heart of Texas, San Antonio is home to 1.6 million people. We have been voted one of the top five cities to live in America and one of the fastest growing. You will quickly learn to love our climate because “you don’t shovel Sun!” We have over 300 sunny days per year, and our winters are mild. San Antonio offers a young and vibrant Jewish community without the intensity and overcrowding found in many larger communities.

San Antonio offers a wonderful quality of life with a low cost of living. Homes with 4 bedrooms sell for $250,000. San Antonio is recognized as one of the best places to buy real estate, retire, and find entry level jobs in health, law, insurance, and accounting fields. For these and many more reasons, coming to our great city is a great move!

San Antonio’s Jewish community is 10,000 strong. We have a thriving Orthodox community and an outstanding Torah Academy. Congregation Rodfei Sholom is San Antonio’s Orthodox synagogue, with a membership of over 300 families. Being a part of the Shul means you are part of a family closely connected to Torah, community, and Eretz Yisrael. There are people of all ages, religious backgrounds, and nationalities. We hope you will join us for a visit and explore how life can be fulfilling in a more relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.

Let us show you some genuine Texan hospitality.  Shalom Y’all!

Participated in Fair 2015, 2017
