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
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
San Diego, California
I’m still trying to figure out what they all have in common.
