There is a 100 family congregation centered in Davidson, NC (just north of Charlotte). It's called the Lake Norman Jewish Congregation. (Lake Norman Jewish Congregation - Our mission is to meet the religious, educational, social and life cycle needs of the Jewish community of Lake Norman, attentive to families' individual needs.

I realize this thread is a few years old, but we are in a similar situation and looking for any new or updated information about Jewish areas in Charlotte/Union county. We are relocating to Charlotte from CA and have three young children. We are looking to stay within about twenty minutes (give or take a few) of the Shalom Park area since we plan on enrolling in the preschool and hebrew school and within 20 minutes of Ballantyne too. We would love to live in a community that has some ammenties like, swimming pools, playground, tennis courts, walking/bike trails and maybe a clubhouse? And of course top notch schools are a priority as well.

Some of the communities that seems interesting so far are Weddington Chase, Brookhaven, Marvin Creek, Deerfield Creek, Hembstead, Providence Country Club (?). Suggestions and opinions are welcome!

Thanks in advance for all your help!

Charlotte is good for Jews. We don't have good ruggelach, lox, or pastrami, and we're not given deferential treatment like we receive in NY, but it's good. It's not NY, which is the true West Bank, but what is outside Tel Aviv?

L'chaim, bubeleh!

It's probably just as far as Shalom Park, but there are two congregations in Fort Mill, SC. Temple Kol Ami meets every other week at Unity Presbyterian Church and Temple Solel meets at St Philip Neri. Solel is reform, whereas Kol Ami kinda rides the line between conservative and reform. We are members of Kol Ami but have my inlaws are members of Solel and they really enjoy it.
