About this community

Marlboro and Manalapan are neighboring towns in 
Central New Jersey, commutable to New York City by bus or train, yet a world apart in terms of peace, quality of life and safety. Close to the Jersey Shore, 30-minute from Highland Park, Deal and Lakewood, an hour from Teaneck and less than 90 minutes to Brooklyn, Queens and Philadelphia. 

The area hosts 5 Orthodox shuls with families that span the Torah spectrum.  Yeshivish, Modern Orthodox, FFB, BT, Ashkenazim, and Sephardim, all come together in a warm, caring and non-judgmental kehillah.   Whether you wear jeans/t-shirt or black hat/white shirt, sheitel, hat, or have uncovered hair, you will feel welcome and have an important place in our community. 

Our community has eruvim, a mikvah, kosher restaurants and several major supermarkets with a wide variety of kosher food. We also have several 
ollelim and many opportunities to attend shiurim and frequent community events.

You can buy a single-family home with 4-5 bedrooms, a 2 car garage and spacious half-acre property for $400-$750K. Townhouse developments and adult communities (55+) are priced between $150-$500K.

Our local day school is Shalom Torah Academy (N-8). Nearby is Yeshiva Tiferes Naftoli, a Chofetz Chaim-affiliated yeshiva high school, offering strong secular learning in addition to Judaic studies.  Our students
