The neighborhood that's just northeast of Emory, called Merry Hills because the streets are named Merry Lane, Christmas Lane, Holly Lane, etc, houses a large vibrant Jewish community. A nice, fine irony, eh?

There are several synagogues in north Alpharetta/Sandy Springs. The Atlanta Jewish Community Center is located in Dunwoody--???Spalding Drive.

There are at least two synagogues here in Dunwoody (I vote at one), and a JCC. I see people walking to temple all the time, all the grocery stores have major kosher offerings, so I have to assume there's a huge Jewish community here.

Alpharetta doesn't have a Jewish neighborhood per se, but there's a substantial Jewish presence in North Fulton, mostly east of 400 or south of Mansell Rd. There are several synagogues in East Cobb, one in Downtown Roswell, one in Alpharetta, a couple in what's now John's Creek, plus Chabad of North Fulton. That's in addition to five or more synagogues/Chabads in the Dunwoody/Sandy Springs area, which as RoslynHolcomb mentions is also home to the main location of the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta (on Tilly Mill Road). The North Metro Campus of the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta (http://atljf.org/page.aspx?id=119699 - broken link), located in an office park just off North Point Parkway between Old Milton Parkway and Kimball Bridge Road, serves as offices and a program location for the JFGA, MJCC, and other Jewish organizations.

One note about the ironically named Merry Hills neighborhood in the Toco Hills area that plessthanpointohfive mentions: it's heavily Jewish, to be sure, but it's heavily Orthodox, which might not be what the OP is looking for, since she made it a point to mention that they're non-practicing.

Schools are excellent pretty much anywhere in North Fulton or East Cobb. Some have better reputations or higher test scores than others, but all are among the best schools in the state, and in some cases compare well with the best schools in the country. Most of Dunwoody is in DeKalb County; opinions vary about the current and future quality of DeKalb's schools, but nearly all of the schools in the Dunwoody area are very good.
