Emerging Orthodox Communities

On April 6th, the Orthodox Union will be hosting an event called “Meet Emerging Jewish Communities” in New York. They will promote 12 growing Jewish communities from around North America and provide information about synagogues, day schools, and yeshivot; kosher stores and other Jewish communal resources; job opportunities and affordable housing; and “Torah atmosphere in which to raise children.”

What’s surprising is the list:

Charleston, South Carolina
Columbus, Ohio
Dallas, Texas
Denver, Colorado
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Houston, Texas
Indianapolis, Indiana
Memphis, Tennessee
Oakland, California
Omaha, Nebraska
San Diego, California
Seattle, Washington

I’m still trying to figure out what they all have in common.
