I went to the Palm Springs area of California and noticed, to my amazement, that a multitude of Orthodox Jewish families have moved there.

What other USA cities/towns have a high-percentage of them? Thank you,

Here are some of the tops:

Brooklyn, New York and Kiryas Joel (definitely the epicenter of Orthodox Jews anywhere outside of Israel)

"The Oranges", New Jersey

Skokie, Illinois (I grew up here - largest orthodox communities in the country outside of the New York)

West Rogers Park, Chicago

Fairfax District, Los Angeles

Miami and its surrounding area

Miami Beach has a huge orthodox Jewish community. It's very active and very visible.

The largest Jewish communities in the US are New York, Los Angeles, and Miami. I believe that Chicago and Philly are next.

I know Sullivan, Orange and Rockland Counties in NY have relatively high Jewish populations. I believe Spring Valley has a large Orthodox community too. This might help as well: American Jews - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I'd venture to guess that most major cities in the U.S., even in the Sunbelt, have an Orthodox community. In Atlanta, it's the Toco Hills/Briarvista neighborhood in NE Atlanta:

Congregation Beth Jacob
