Hi,

We are American citizens but have been living abroad doing kiruv work for the past 15 years.

We have a small, family owned business that requires us to move back to the US for the foreseeable future.

The business is online so we can move virtually anywhere. We are financially solvent and frum (yeshivish/lubavitch types). We love doing kiruv/interacting with different kinds of Jews and contributing positively to the community.

I am looking for suggestions for a small but warm out of town community which has a girls' high school (or at least is within about a 30-40 minute drive of one), with reasonably affordable housing prices as we'd like to buy right away.

Some places that have been suggested are Norfolk, Memphis, West Hartford, and Rochester NY.

Anyone have any feedback on above? Or suggestions for other places?

Thanks!

Hi,

I assume that Atlanta and Detroit are more big-city type places, though?

Or am I mistaken?

Providence, Rhode Island

They have a girls high-school and its small and definitely out of town. My best friends family lives there and my husband and I love to visit. It feels like a really nice place the shul is very welcoming.

I can answer any questions about Rochester.
We have a frum day school (as well as an egalitarian community day school, not relevant to you from what you describe), a girls high school and a Yeshiva. The community is largely a mix of Chofetz Chaim yeshivish and “JPF” (just plain frum). The schools are run by Chofetz Chaim people.
Elementary is coed through third or fourth grade, depending on the year and the particular class. Once they are separated, boys are on a separate floor of the building and have completely separate schedules, programs, trips etc.
Girls school is good but really small (like 12 or 15 girls this year). They do a good job of giving the girls many opportunities of big schools - they run a full production, have a G.O. , offer several AP classes every year, etc.
Yeshiva is a small but very warm school. Pretty standard Chofetz Chaim high school (well, standard for outside of NYC). They have a dorm and about half the kids come from out of town.
Housing prices have been going up (but that’s the same virtually everywhere in this country!), but still affordable compared to most frum communities: you can get a 3 bedroom house for 180-210k, and a 4 bedroom for under 250k. Obviously prices will vary but this isn’t unrealistic.
You can check out www.TorahRochester.com and I’m happy to answer any questions on this thread or PM.

You can definitely see if Cincinnati meets your criteria. Ataragirlshs.com I think is the website for the girls' high school

I love the community in Norfolk. I've visited many times and met different community members, always a pleasure.
I did not know they had a girls high school.

Norfolk definitely does.
So does Savannah as of this past year if you want to add that to the list.
Didn't know that Memphis did though.

Atlanta, Dallas, and Denver were the first 3 that came to my mind. You should also check out Phoenix, Boston, St. Louis, and Pittsburgh.

The Detroit community is only near Detroit. It is primarily in the cities of Southfield and Oak Park. Both of them are small suburban cities separated from each other by one 4 lane road. It is one of the bigger out of town communities, but nothing near as big as Baltimore or Passaic. The community actually has 3 high schools. Farber- a Bnei Akiva type school, Bais Yaakov, and Darchei Torah. My daughter is in the biggest girls class in BY (grades 1-12) right now and her grade has around 45 girls.

Big/ small is very subjective. I would consider any high school with under 100 students to be small/ out of towny but it depends what op is looking for.

What about Cleveland? It’s an incredibly warm community, really has a small-town feel, but it’s also big enough that you have multiple girls schools - currently three with high school divisions - to choose from. I lived there for many years and have only good things to say about it.

Housing is very affordable too! There are plenty of neighborhoods to choose from, with lots of different options in terms of pricing. We lived in a modest five bedroom house in Cleveland Heights, we sold it when we moved two years ago for $180,000.

Another major benefit to Cleveland is that there are two separate voucher programs for private schools - one is income-based, but one is for everyone. We only qualified for the general vouchers, I believe it gave us about $5,000 per year per student.

I’d be happy to tell you more offline, Cleveland really is a special and wonderful place and I’d really encourage you to look into it!
