Anyone know if there are any Jews living in Washington, besides for Seattle? I know there are chabads in other places, but are there any communities too?

There's a small community in Mercer Island.

Seattle has a lovely community. There is a Sephardic community, an Ashkenazi community, and the Chabad community. It's -- in my opinion -- the most gorgeous place in America and the nicest community.

I think it's basically just Seattle in which there is diversity. Spread out over WA are other shluchim, all related to Rabbi Levitan of Seattle, I believe.

Yes Seattle is beautiful and the community is lovely. I'm just curious if there are other communities in Washington state, particularly because Seattle is so expensive.

I think Olympia, Tacoma and Bainbridge Island also all have small communities.

Interesting, are they actual communities or just the chabad Rabbis and their families?

No comparison. Portland has a school, a kollel, and a growing Jewish community. Outside of Seattle, there is nothing comparable in Washington state.

Just out of curiosity, I was reading a few years ago in a non-Jewish source, that Portland OR. has run out of affordability housing. So if you want affordable housing you have to go to Vancouver WA.

Is the Jewish community shifting that way?
Is there affordable housing in the Jewish part of town?
