Wynnewood, PA United States – OU Communities

About this community

Wynnewood is part of an historic Main Line suburb, Lower Merion Township, in the Philadelphia area. Near or within the neighborhood are the necessary components of an Orthodox life including four elementary schools, a Modern Orthodox/Zionist high school, a girls’ high school, a boy’s mesivta, the famed Philadelphia Yeshiva and other educational facilities. Classes and shiurim for adults are plentiful. Not far from Wynnewood are a brand-new women’s and men’s mikvah. Kosher dining, food stores including two national grocery chains with extensive kosher sections (fish, fresh meat, bakeries, deli, prepared foods) are nearby. The neighborhood Jewish Community Center offers exercise facilities, a year-round indoor/outdoor pool, Jewish focused programming and sports, and a kosher dairy café.

Congregation Beth Hamedrosh (CBH), a vibrant and diverse Orthodox synagogue anchors the community. The synagogue offers a full complement of programming and learning opportunities. Within our extensive eruv are a range of moderately priced homes (starting at $300K in Penn Wynne and $200K in Overbrook Park) and some rentals. CBH has established relationships with real estate agents and insurance lawyers for assistance in finding homes.

Wynnewood is 20 minutes from the center of Philadelphia, close to the Philadelphia International Airport, Amtrak, the zoo, museums, the Phillies, and other sports arenas.

Synagogue members are available for networking for job opportunities in the Philadelphia region. Several medical school affiliated hospitals are nearby. Other industries include drug companies, hi-tech firms, universities (Penn, Drexel, Temple, Bryn Mawr, Haverford and others) all within a 30-minute drive.
